COMMENTS BY GRAMMAR SCHOOL STUDENTS ON MUSIC

REFRAIN means "Don't do it". A refrain in music is the part you better not play.

A virtuoso is somebody with real high morals.

Handel was half German, half Italian and half English. He was rather large.

Beethoven expired in 1827 and later died from this.

Music sung by two people at the same time is called a duel.

I know what a sextet is, but I'd rather not say.

I know our school orchestra is the best in the whole state, -of course, I may be a bit pregnant.

Pianissimo is a spare word for when you cannot think how to say shh.

Tempo is how fast people are playing when they can no longer be measured in miles per hour.

Agnus Dei was a woman composer famous for her church music.

Gregory (or the Gregorian chant) lived from 540 to 604, but I forget whether it was A.C. or D.C.

My favorite composer is Opus. My very-best liked piece is the Bronze Lullaby.

Most authorities agree that music of antiquity was written long ago.

Caruso was at first an Italian. Then, someone heard his voice and said it would go a long way, so he came to america.

Copland is one of our most famous conductors and contemporary composers. It is unusual to be contemporary. Most composers don't live until they are dead.
