You must complete this assignment by yourself.

“Why is a raven like a writing desk?” — Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland

Just to get you started thinking about such things, consider musical notation. It doesn’t look anything like C++, Java, or any other programming language you’re used to, but it shares many things in common with them.

In 850 words (about two pages) or less, explain how musical notation is like a programming language.

I will grade this assignment to reward creativity because there is little "technical correctness" to judge.
