About

  Hello, my name is Connor, I am 11 years old and was recently shown a trombone.  I was instantly hooked.  I told my mom I wanted to play the trombone and she or my older sister or anyone was not going to talk me out of it.

  I asked to change my electives in 6th grade to band and though it was a minor issue, I am in band.

  We had to rent a trombone for now.  The other day when we picked it up I was so excited I could not wait to get home and try it.  For now it sounds kinda like farts but I cant wait to play my first song.  I look forward to practicing and hopefully someday lessons and my very own trombone.

  Lessons and my very own trombone are a lot of money so I am hoping to get a little help along the way.

  I have seen some great projects make some money to help out.  If I go over my goal, I hope to possibly help out other kids chasing there dreams that may not be able to afford an instrument and lessons.

  Thank you for any support.

Risks and challenges

There a few things that my family and friends can help with but more support will push me more.
I get a sense that band kids like me are teased, sometimes just carrying my trombone onto the bus. I don't care, I want to play. The case itself is more than half my height.
Another challenge is cost of lessons and a new trombone. One way or another I will get them as I know I like playing so I want to learn how to.
If you watch my video, you will see for yourself the challenges I have ahead. But in a few months when I post a video of me in a school concert, you will see I can overcome all of them!
