When I was a little girl learning my first Bach Invention (a simple, two-part fugue), my teacher asked me if I knew what a sequence was.

“Yes,” I nodded eagerly. “They’re little shiny round things!”

“Little shiny round things?” My teacher was puzzled.

“I have them on my dance costume.” I thought she was talking about sequins.
