I went to Wrenshall School, it was a K-12 school that required that you took music as an elementary student. That meant whether you could carry a tune or not, you were in choir. Whether you could read musical notes or not, you were expected to play the recorder, the triangle (is that the technical term?) and the bongos. To the credit of Mrs. Busch our Choir/Music Director and Mr. Smithson, the Band Instructor, they did introduce us to a full range of musical instruments.
