Student turns over a music symbol card with the sign for trill.
Me: “That’s called a trill. I don’t know if you’ve ever seen—”
Student: “Ooh! OOOOOOHHHH! I know! It’s what they play in a movie when something bad’s about to happen!”
Very young student spots Grand Staff cards in her box and wants to play with them.
Me: Well, we really haven’t looked at these yet, but maybe I can show you the C’s. This one’s called High C. Can you say High C?
Student: Hi, C!
Me: (laughing) I suppose I had that coming. This one’s called Treble C.
Student: Hi, Treble C!
