"Yesterday we were doing follow-up in organizing beats into twos and threes and fours. I just had a whole string of beats and asked [the students], ‘do you know if this is in twos, threes, or fours? They finally figured out, you don’t know unless somehow you show it, you divide it, or you symbolize it in some way. Finally, this kid said, ‘Oh my gosh! Music is so mathematical’ and I responded, ‘yes, it is!’"
