All of my 4 children the oldest 18,16,12 youngest 11 went to a performing arts school all 4 played instruments from 3rd grade until 8th grade(in order from oldest to youngest) the flute,trumpet,saxaphone(reeds were expensive),the youngest wanted to play percussion but had to play a wind instrument 1st so we started with the trumphet now we are percussion but the teacher says the xylophone is first before they start the snare!
Has you daughter ever suffered with allergies or sinus problems!?
My youngest son is thick and last year started complaining of chest pains after PE running but never band and that required lots of breathing so I to became alarmed and took him to the dr!
The dr stated he did have allergies and he had exercise induced asthma which if it goes undetected or the child doesn't complain can go untreated so he was persribed allergy meds to help and albuterol 2puffs b 4 PE BAND & CHORUS!
Middle school is an adjustment and it all depends on what type of child you have and if the child was prepared for the change! My children where in an environment with k-8 so they were excited about middle school but sad to loose reccess! LOL
Our children are much stronger than we give them credit for I am with you about the quiting that is not a option I would explain to her in a stern voice once you start something you can't quit but talk to the teacher about a different instrument I tell me kids all the time if you STARTING THE HABIT OF QUITING or EVEN NOT COMPLETING THINGS ITS A HABIT FORMED FOR LIFE THAT IS HARD TO BREAK!
I would after taking her to the dr to make sure everything is ok inquire with the teacher about changing instruments ask her about the flute! She wouldn't have to wrry about reeds that can be a hassle!
I believe she candle everything or else she wouldn't have choosen them!
My kids deal with the A & B day schedule too!
Things will work out but we as parents and I realized this have to stop babyn our kids not let them b grown but step back a little give her time to adjust to middle school!
Your daugter can handle the school load u must remember if it were something fun she would be fine my 12yr old is in the 7th grade he bus comes at 730 am which means he gets up at 630 leaves the house at 710-715 to get to school by 9 and does not get home until 5-530pm to only have time to eat do his homework shower and fall asleep by 9pm supposedly watching TV but its watching him THAT IS A WORK DAY! And a total time change from his 6t grade schedule it got worse for 7th grade!
Life is not always going to be easy if she is overwhelmed there ia balance!!
BELIEVE ME IF IT'S SOMETHING THEY WANT TO DO THEY FIGURE IT OUT DON'T THEY!!!! LOL
LASTLY IF SHE CAN SING IN CHORUS & DOES NOT HAVE ANY PROBLEMS IN PE WITHOUT HER CHEST HURTING SHE MAY JUST WANT TO GET OUT OF BAND
Things will work out I'm prayn on it!!!
