It was the third week of school, and Dr. Arnold Rosen and Dr. Paul Christensen were helping 35 students in the class. Their job was to check for good playing posture. In order to do that, they had to ignore the squeaks from clarinets and other assorted off-tones coming from 10 types of instruments.
Both men are part of a new volunteer group in the Rockford Public Schools called the Band Grandpas. Read more about the volunteer group on the RPS 205 blog.
