Poetry, notes, and drawings by William Michaelian
Why so sad, assuming it you falling off the treble cleff. A sad excuse for a lesson if it left this sentiment to reverberate in it's wake. Music...to me...such joy. There were times though, when the lessons stole everything but the notes.
William,this one I love the most!
Ah, Wine and Words — as we become better acquainted and you read a bit further, you’ll come to learn just how important music is to me — truly a great love of my life. Nothing I write or draw, really, is without it. Incidentally, when I was a kid, I did have piano lessons, and I enjoyed them immensely. Meanwhile, these little “self-portraits” always seem to just sort of happen. I liken them to journal entries. Funny that such melancholy depictions bring me such pleasure....Aleksandra, this time our little hero fell off the clef and landed at the bass! Whole notes, half notes, quarter notes, sixteenth....
Gorgeous, your face along the musical lines. I think immediately of the words: Every Good Boy Deserves Fruit. That's how we were taught to remember some of the notes on the piano.
perfect!it reminds me of practicing scales!love it. William.
Your eyes are multiplying, William. You are going to need wider paper! :) I count 6 eyes and 5 noses, and the 6th eye has gone to sleep. The first two beards remind me of fiddleheads, stretching. I can hear them all humming along together, as some unseen hand plays the notes. Well done!
Let's try that again... Ha! Awesome... I take comfort in the fact that it looks like an Alto line of Haydn, notes with tails down... Soprani gypped once again! haha Katie, haha.
Elisabeth: A before E, except after C — no, wait — G, that’s not it.... I guess I get an F.Noxy, thanks. Now I’m tempted to write a whole piece of music using this elaborate form of notation.Annie, thank you, too. That sleepy eye, I think, must want to be a quarter note. And just so you know, I have thought of doing a room-sized mural of interlocking index cards.Oops! Cassie, I deleted your deleted comment. I should really restore it so everyone could see the horrible, embarrassing mistake you made. Never in all my days have I seen such a mistake..... Okay, maybe I am exaggerating just a bit. Next time, if I can get a Handel on it, I’ll bypass Haydn and shoot for the whole Hallelujah Chorus.
It was a way of remembering the notes on the bars of music or scales or some such thing - Every Good Boy Deserves Fruit, Good boys Deserve Fruit Always. I cannot remember the exact terminology. Someone musical might enlighten us.
Every Good Boy Does Fine is the correct sequence but the question remains: Is this a good boy and is he doing fine? Looks more like a dazed mangas who has just finished a bottle of ouzo and is getting ready to dance a zeibekiko!
Well, Elisabeth, Vassilis has saved us once again. He’s always an expert at reading between the lines.Thanks, Laura!
...and during that dance he got himself a black eye by the swing of all mighty fig tree... :O))))))fedlernb is my word verifiction :O)
Ah, now that’s a dance!
