Music! Music! Music!

By Kathleen W. Redman
1     Neal kept looking at the clock. He was waiting for music class. He was only in kindergarten, but he loved music. He liked to listen to music at home. He liked to listen to music in the car. He liked to listen to music anytime! Would his reading class ever be over? He had waited all week for music class.
 
2     Finally, it was 1:30. It was time for music class!
 
3     "Put your books away," Miss Lennon said. "It is time for us to walk to music class."
 
4     The boys and girls put their books on the shelves. They lined up by the door. Everyone was ready.
 
5     "Let's go," she said.
 
6     The class walked together down the hall. Just around the corner, Miss Lennon asked them to wait. They could all hear sounds coming from the next classroom. Miss Lennon knocked on the door and then led them inside.
 
7     It was a big room. There were a lot of chairs in the room. There was a big piano and lots of other musical instruments.
 
8     "Children, this is Mr. Reid. He is your music teacher. Mr. Reid, where do you want the children to sit?"
 
9     A tall man with gray hair got up from the piano bench.
 
10     "Hi, boys and girls," he said. "Let's see . . . hmmm . . . For now, just choose a chair anywhere and have a seat."
 
11     All the children chose chairs and sat down. Mr. Reid looked around the room. "Shhhh," he said. "Listen carefully. What do you hear? Do you hear something outside? Do you hear something inside? Do you hear someone talking? Do you hear noises?"
 
12     Everyone was very quiet. Everyone listened.
 
13     "I hear someone walking in the hall," Jen said.
