Most American musicians I know (at least those trained), know the difference between a minim and a hemi-semi-dimi-quaver.
My American handicap, having sung numbers from "Sound of Music" in concert is the 7th tone of the scale.
Remember the "... tea, a drink with jam and bread...", here in Spain, and much of Europe, including the Austria of María Von Trapp, it is "si" which simply does not work with the song.
First noticed the problem when my music teacher here (oboe) said what sounded like "c" and even though my pitch indicator told me I was right, she kept indicating that I was sharp. I was thinking of the name of the note - tonic C on the scale, and she was speaking of solfa "si" which is the 7th note of the scale, "B".
