…Ben Clapton of the Top Left Hand Page blog. Congratulations! And thanks to everyone who participated! The instrument is the oboe. Ben also correctly alludes to the fact that clue #3 is the false clue. No, oboes were not banned from Australia for making emus sick. 🙂 So, for anyone who cares to try to decode the mystery word from the false clue, here’s how it works. The mystery word is five letters long and is formed by combining the last letters of one word in the false clue with the first letters of the next word. (For my students, this word is then placed on the corresponding blank in their assignment books and at the end of the year will be part of the sentence that reveals The Mystery of Music.) Can anyone find the mystery word?
Stay tuned until the end of the next month and I’ll post the clues for our current theme – Great Pianists.
