Twice a week I teach piano at an after school program in Orinda. The kids are nice and I generally enjoy myself. Last week I had a good introductory lesson with a new student that I’ll call Simon.
Keitho: OK Simon, listen up. This is a quarter note. It’s gets one count. A half note gets two counts. A dotted half note gets three counts. This is a whole note. How many counts do you suppose it gets?
Simon. [Thinking hard] 30.
Keitho: That’s right.
