When her teachers would introduce a new song to the class, she would be handed the “untried music” to sing by note until the rest of her peers, following by ear, would learn it.

“Music Lessons” tells about the accidental life lessons Vowell learns while being in marching band. The quote from her book, “…but somehow I was supposed to lift a baritone horn that measured twice my body weight, blow into it while reading microscopic sheet music…” (26) shows just how much Vowell enjoyed being in marching band but she stayed with it for as long as she could. Later in the essay Vowell explains that in eighth grade she switches from the baritone horn to the trumpet, which is cut short because of the shape of her jaw (30). In an interview with Robert Birnbaum of Identity Theory “I trained as a musician growing up, and I think a lot about sound.” This quote just puts together how much Vowell enjoys music even though she is not skilled in music or musically talented. But not being musically talented does not mean that you cannot write or talk about it.
