I recently reviewed a savings software program for kids here. Amanda is really enjoying using it. She set a goal for her savings, which helps encourage her to save instead of spend. You might wonder what the goal is.
Yes, Amanda is saving for a trumpet. When she goes to 5th grade next year, she will be eligible to play in the band. This interests her and the instrument she has chosen is the trumpet. "Why the trumpet?" her father and I (and our ear drums) have asked her.
"It's a great instrument. It's loud and fun, like me!"
But seriously, I've heard that it's a difficult instrument to learn to play. She'll only be ten. Does anyone have any first-hand experience with it?
