14 Music Bento Lunches

Music Lunches Collage

I did not start playing taking piano lessons until I was in the 4th grade. I remember thinking that my Mom should have put me in lessons much earlier. I thought that I was too old to start taking music lessons. But after I asked for lessons she did find a piano teacher for me and I took lessons through high school.

I made these lunches over the summer when I spent a lot of time with my niece and nephews. Many of these instrument and music themed lunches are very basic. I tried to include instruments that kids often study: piano, French horn, cello, voice, saxophone, guitar, trumpet, tuba, harp, violin, and drum.
