Today a mom and her daughter came in and paid off their rented clarinet. The mom told me how she met her husband in marching band and now their kid is in band as well. After talking to the mom more she told me her and her daughter both play clarinet and that they both practice together: "It's our bonding time".
If that wasn't enough they were interested in keyboards so after showing them all the cool options we have they wanted to play around on them for a bit. After getting off of the phone I saw them sitting on the same bench playing through some Sondheim songs, Piano Man, and a few piano favorites (including Chopsticks, of course).
It was a nice heart-warming moment to round out the week and it reminded me how lucky I am to have a support system similar to that.
Thanks, mom. <3.
