Every Good Boy Deserves Failure. And All Cows End Gorily - or is it Eat Grass? Generations of children have struggled over mnemonics designed to help them translate five black lines and a series of dots into music. Some accomplish this feat; some - like me - remember little except these disjointed sentences. But that could soon be history, according to a charity that's introducing a music notation system to the UK from Finland that is accessible enough for the youngest children to understand. "A revolution in music education is under way," says Brian Cope, of Drake Music Scotland.
