Yesterday, I asked a student who has taken more than a year of piano from me to tell me what a certain note was in her music. I tapped her song with my pencil and said "Ok, Akiyah - if this note before it is a D, what do you think this note is?"
I paused. "No...we don't have 'O's' in music, do we? Try again."
She thought really hard. "I have it. It's an 'L'."
Maybe I should rethink my vocation.
