A few weeks ago, his teacher told him. He was named a finalist and would receive a scholarship to use at the college of his choice.

With a violin in their hands, they receive instruction and practice for their upcoming spring performances. The new Strings program, as it is called, is helping ensure that every child has a chance to play.

Last week, a humming noise filled the music room at Ecker Hill Middle School. No other sounds were heard besides the high and low murmur from students blowing into their harmonicas.

The sixth-grade students each received their own harmonica and learned how to play it during a Blues in the Schools program last week. The program was organized by Kelly Wallis, the band instructor at Ecker Hill, and put on by representatives of the Utah Blues Society.
