Quarter Note


Mrs. B the Band Director:

"OK, everyone! Now that we've learned how to play your very first note on the trombone and the euphonium, let's use our "too-too tonguing" and try the notes in #2! These notes are called Quarter Notes. Quarter Notes get one beat each. What does a quarter note look like?"

Note: Expected Answer is "it's colored in, with a stick attached."

Sam the Euphonium player:

"A Golf Club!"

Tee hee! Look out for "hole" notes and "balloon" half notes! :)

You know what? When I was learning theory ages ago, that's how I remember what a quarter note was! Tres funny! :)

Sam sounds like one creative kid. You're making me nostalgic for my high school band days. I played the electric piano in the jazz band and the xylophone in the marching and concert bands. Lots of lugging heavy equipment (I marched WITH my small xylo-style bells -- no stupid glockenspiels for me -- which is the reason I have back and knee problems today. But I wouldn't have given it up for anything.
