Music and Laughter

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!
