Me: (takes off mask) So, tell me all about your first lesson.
Gamma: (deer in headlights, holds up drum sticks) It was fun?
Me: Tell me something you learned.
Gamma: (taps dashboard with sticks) Uh…eighth notes?
Me: Eighth notes? (brings up hands to clap) One-and-two-and-three-and-four-and?
Gamma: (gasps) How did you know that?!
Me: (deep mental sigh) Gamma, what instrument did I use to play?
Me: No! Baritone! Like Beta!
Gamma: Baritones have eighth notes too?!
Me: (deeper mental sigh) Honey, music is music. They all have eighth notes.
