    I love this song, but I’m not the only one: when I play it, my two cats come and lie down all along the keyboard. :))

      That’s wonderful! Our family cat isn’t a great music lover, but our bunny adores music. Whenever someone sits down to the piano and starts playing (which, as you can imagine, happens often in our home), bunny hurries over and settles in underneath the piano to enjoy the sound.

    I’m not just talking about this particular song, I’m talking about any song, like hot cross buns and listen for bells

      Ah, I understand. Well, it depends on which key signature the song is in – in simple terms, that means which note is Do. If a key signature requires one or more sharps to be applied to the whole song (or the section of a song in that key), then the sharps will be on their corresponding note’s line or space at the beginning of the staff, right after the treble and bass clef symbols, but before the time signature numbers. If only particular notes that occur during the song need to be sharp, the sharp symbol will be found just to the left of that note. I hope that makes sense. Good luck and happy playing!

    Were do the sharp’s go on the staff?

      This song doesn’t have any sharps because it’s in the key of C (C is Do), so I’m not sure what you mean. If you still need help, would you please rephrase your question?

    My dad had a joke about this song.
    It was: “Was this song written by a dog?”

    Thanks,

    Obie

    Dear Mr. Hoffman, in lesson 11 you are supposed to write and compose you’re own music, and I already have a song made up. But I cannot write music for it! Please give me some ideas! Love Cathryn
