A 7 yr. old piano student told her teacher “It’s weird you call these black notes Eb but they’re in different parts of the piano. Why don’t you give each one it’s own name?” Teacher explained they are the same key even though they are in different locations. The kid said “The trees have different leaves but they’re all trees. You don’t call them all Birch or Gingko or Maple.” The teacher thought about it and later decided to study with the kid instead and told the parents to keep their money.
