Find your music and play it!

A long time ago, in the first or second grade, the music teacher came in and gave us all a test.

She played a note on the piano, and then another note. "Is the second note higher or lower than the first one?" she asked. What an easy test, I thought. A few more notes and a few more questions, and we were done.

Years later, a friend recalled taking the same sort of test. "It was awful," she said. "I couldn't tell one note from another. I didn't have a clue."
