Sorry so late! Hurricane Matthew has hit our little town and our surrounding towns too. So Prayers are welcomed!
I was thinking about notes last night. The never ending counting of notes and how hard it must be to for those who never learned to read music….playing in orchestra its a MUST!
Note Names and Beats:
Whole note, also known as “Semibreve” is a count of 4 beats.
Next is dotted note, also known as”Dotted Minim” is a count of 3.
A half note, also known as “Minim” is 2 beats.
Then you have the dotted quarter, also known as “Dotted Crotchet” is 1 1/2 beats.
Quarter note, also known as “Crotchet” is 1 beat.
Then you have your eighth note, also known as “Quaver” is 1/2 beat.
“Semiquaver” is 1/4 beat.
And here is a little musical Joke just for you!
Had to share this post from Pinterest because it works! I started this past July and August planting Cabbage/Collard seed in pots. As they grow you can transplant them to bigger pots in your greenhouse.
I am so glad I did this because we had a huge rain storm and the ones I planted in the garden didn’t make it. So I have back up plants in the greenhouse. I have also planted beans, peppers, and tomato’s in pots. I will post pictures of them this weekend. This just really works you must try! Just keep them fertilized and they will grow in pots!

Today’s little music theory: Treble Clef. The definition of a treble clef is a symbol that is placed on every line of music to show the notes which will be sung or played by voices and instruments that can achieve higher notes
So playing violin you will see the Treble Clef, not the Bass Clef. Here is a demonstration of the Treble Clef.
Treble Clef is also known a G Clef.
The treble clef is also called the “G clef” because the symbol at the beginning of the staff (a stylized letter “G“) encircles the second line of the staff, indicating that line to be G4 (or g above middle C). (dictionary.onmusic.org)
Well it sure has been raining here in the East, and flooded our little town a few times as well. But as it would seem beauty still prevails here in my Stringed life. Monday my little violin students lit up my heart, watching them explore their new found world of violin. Each smiling from ear to ear in excitement. Even as the rain and thunder crashed, it had seemed to slip their young minds. Which its nice to see them do that, giving them sort of a freedom of the outside.
Entering into today, I’m planning my Daughters 5th Birthday Celebration and getting a little nervous about how Saturday may turn out. So much rain and of course she is looking forward to a out door party. Its still raining today, feels like it will never end. But it will all work out, I have to remember not to worry about such things as to much rain. She is having a Disney Princess party, as expected. I was surprised as she picked “Merida”, princess of Brave. I love Scotland and love the music there, of course “Merida”, is a Scottish princess. Zoe responded in telling me that she looked like her, I think is so sweet. She loves the movie too. I as well do, as its a more about Mother and Daughter not just a love story.
My name is Melissa. First I am a mother, of three beautiful children. I’m also a violinist and I teach in my private studio and the school system. I teach for the love strings and in memory of Shinichi Suzuki. I live on a homestead, where we grow vegetables, flowers, chickens and children.
My site is created to celebrate my love for violin and all music. But don’t be surprised if you encounter homespun recipes, some gardening tips, and a few chickens, too. Thank you for stopping by my World.
