In the NOM, Lady Aberlin is having a difficult time learning to play the bass violin; King Friday tells her to practice. Old Goat expresses his sympathy. Lady Elaine plays her accordian which she has disguised as a bass violin. Lady Aberlin decides to dance with her bass. Mr. Rogers goes to Negri's Music Shop to meet Yo-Yo Ma who talks about learning to play the cello and how he would play pieces that expressed his moods. He plays two minuets by Bach. Joe Negri talks about learning to play the guitar. Joe and Yo-Yo play "Tree, tree, tree" as a duet. Mr. Rogers thinks quietly about what he has just heard.
