Kathy had to admit it: her son’s rock band was getting better. What started as a cacophony of electric guitars and kick drums now sounded like actual music whenever they played. The band was scheduled to play a high school talent show in just a few weeks, so the game room of her home had been turned into a rehearsal space. Kathy was very proud of the progress they had made, but at the same time she was hopeful that once the show was over, things would go back to normal and the house would go back to being quiet and peaceful. Yes, the band was getting better – but they were still so LOUD.
