Jake and Jackie Learn Some Musical Terms, Part 1
By Beth Beutler
  

1     "Concertos, arias, intervals--how am I ever going to remember all this?" Jackie muttered as she carried her violin case to the car.
 
2     Jake caught up with her, carrying his trumpet case. Both Jake and Jackie were involved with an after-school music program. Jackie took violin lessons, Jake took trumpet lessons, and both took a music appreciation course. Today's lesson had been on some musical terms that related to classical music.
 
3     "What are you muttering about?" Jake asked.
 
4     "I'm trying to remember all the words we learned today." Jackie replied.
 
5     "Why? There won't be a test." Jake tended to be practical about things. When it came to learning, he mostly focused on tasks he would be graded on. Jackie tended to be imaginative, read a lot, and liked to remember all the new things she learned. It didn't matter to her whether there would be a test.
 
6     Jackie rolled her eyes at Jake. "I just want to remember, that's all."
 
7     "Well, let's practice. We learned ten terms today. Remember that the teacher said they were the start of her ABC's of Classical Music."
 
8     "That's right," Jackie said. "There was aria, which is a song in an opera, Baroque was a period of time in the 1600's, and concerto, which focuses on one instrument, or a small group of instruments within an orchestra. What was 'D'?"
