Short story kernel: Pedro the Mariachi

Text Structure: A completely made up story

Kernel Essay:

  1. Pedro, a mariachi trumpet player, was playing his first professional gig at a Mexican restaurant.
  1. Suddenly, someone in the audience asked for a song he didn’t know how to play. 
  1. He tried to ask the director how to play his part, but the director only knew his particular part.
  1. He asked the other trumpet player next to him and the man agreed to hum the harmony to Pedro.  
  1. Thanks to his great ear, Pedro was able to pick up the harmony and play it perfectly.
