What do you call a group of four musicians?
“What do we call one musician playing alone?” asked the teacher. Lots of hands went up. The teacher pointed to one child. “Solo!” came the answer. “That’s quite right, well done you, and well done Robbie for being our very first soloist!” replied the teacher.
Solo, duo, trio and….
“So what would we call a group of two musicians”, asked the teacher. Just a few hands went up. The teacher pointed to another child. “A duo!” came the answer. “That’s quite right, well done you!” replied the teacher. “And a group of three?” continued the teacher, pointing to the only raised hand. “A trio?” “That’s correct, very well done”, said the teacher
Finally the teacher asked the name for a group of four musicians. There was silence. Then suddenly from the back of the class, “Ooh, ooh, I know, I know”, came the response from just one boy, desperately waving his hand. “Yes Charlie?” asked the teacher. “It’s called a Boy Band!” replied Charlie, looking very pleased with himself.
