Making Music

-
(KSDK) It's just 8:30 a.m., but 6th grade band class is music to the ears of Kevin Smith in Ballwin, Missouri.

"My passion is showing kids how to play instruments and getting them started," Smith said.

Smith has been the band director at Selvidge Middle School for two decades.

And he's a favorite of students like 12-year-old Melissa Henricks.

"He's helped me a lot, "she said.

Melissa is learning to play the flute. Or more accurately, re-learning it.

At five foot two, Melissa may be small but she has overcome some big challenges.
