“Every good boy does fine.”
It has been a phrase that has been stuck in my mind for many, many years. And now, as a mother, it has a meaning that goes far beyond its initially learned one. As the parent of young boys, I can only hope that “doing fine” remains a regular occurrence in our lives. It’s no secret that parenting is a tough job but we all try our best to provide our children with every opportunity to learn and grow. And that statement right there brings me back to the aforementioned phrase.
For those of you that may not know the meaning behind that phrase, it is actually a musical one. If you look at a sheet of music, it is much more than just notes on a page to be played. Before being played, it must be read. “Every good boy does fine” is an acronym of sorts. The first letter of each word within the phrase – E, G, B, D, F – stand for the letters of the notes on the lines of a music staff. Hand-in-hand with the notes within the spaces (F, A, C, E), one can play a beautiful tune.
In addition to playing music on a regular basis in our home, I’ve dedicated a portion of our home office to music. I’m slowly but surely putting together a little collection of instruments that the boys can tinker with and try out as they wish. We have a few guitars, a clarinet, some drumsticks, and I’m always on the lookout for new pieces to add. Recently, I had the opportunity to add another wonderful piece to the mix thanks to the wonderful team over at Casio.
The CTK-2400 offers a variety of sampling features that can capture audio and then be played back. With the Long Sampling mode, you can create one sound up to two seconds and with the Short Sampling mode, you can create up to five short sounds and tones. With a built-in sampling microphone, you can also use your voice to record samples.
By creating and piecing together various sound samples and rhythms, you can truly make a piece of music that is uniquely yours. In addition to being able to take advantage of these amazing features, you can utilize the Casio CTK-2400 Sound EFX Sampler’s 150 built-in rhythms and learn from the keyboard’s own library of more than one hundred built-in songs.
Utilizing the LCD display, aspiring musicians can learn both music notation and correct hand positioning, while Casio’s innovative lesson system evaluates performance so users can track their progress and incremental success.
