The other day I was introducing one of my beginning piano students to the wonders of music theory. She's only six, so I took my time explaining the staff, the treble clef and the bass clef while she listened intently. When I finished, I pointed to the treble clef and to review, asked her "Now do you remember what this is called?"
A look of intense concentration came over her face as she tried to read the words written over the symbol. Then, beaming triumphantly, she turned to me and said "It's the TERRIBLE clef!!!"
I loved it! I've heard it called the "trouble" clef before, but never the "terrible" clef!
Maybe she'll grow up to be a folk musician ...
