Minor scales, why would the harmonic minor be more important?

...And just when you think you know it goes up one way and down the other, some ignorant twit like Mozart will write something which goes the other way and, maddeningly, it'll sound OK.



Edited to explain how to add quotes from other threads:

Socrates kept on teaching while being executed. Maybe that's the precedent the parents have in mind.

How Far Would You Move
QUOTE(jim palmer @ Jan 8 2013, 01:46 AM) View Post
Perhaps music was discovered by a stone-age plumber, trying to avoid the walk to the nearest stream by fitting hollow bones and tree trunks together, to deliver water to his/her cave!

This one is from a while ago, but I have only just seen it:

Aaaaaaaaaggghh - The Scream Thread!
QUOTE(Swell Box @ Jan 22 2013, 10:01 AM) View Post
A friend of mine used to wear a pair of his wife's tights under his trousers when working outdoors in very cold weather. He reckoned that they kept him warmer than a pair of thermals. Well, that was his excuse anyway.

Anyhow, he was unfortunate enough to have a mishap one day, which needed a visit to A & E for some stitches in his leg. He tried to explain his logic to the nurse who helped him undress, but she didn't seem at all convinced by his argument.

An octave out
QUOTE(Jack Campin @ Feb 14 2013, 09:51 AM) View Post
You expect that from guitarists (where any D will do in a chord).

But then you also expect guitarists to use a table fork to clean under their toenails.

Why do we spend so much time on note names so early?
QUOTE(Aquarelle @ Feb 19 2013, 09:35 AM) View Post
I had a class of six year olds last year who were learning recorder and who muddled si la and sol on the stave until I introduced Monsieur SImon, Madame LAra and their daughter SOLange - drawn on the stave with appropriate hats. The principle has now been internalised and they don't need the prompts any more.

My (very accident prone) pupil has just gone off on a skiing trip. His piano exam is in 4 weeks. He averages 1 A & E visit per year. What is the statistical likelihood of him coming back in one piece? blink.gif
