Is Sarah blind? deaf? Is Tony blind? deaf? no to all (somehow these aspects seem to sneak into a lot of puzzles) not this one, I fear

Does Sarah stop along the way to play another piano? Took look at another piano? To buy a piano? To sell a piano?

Would Sarah have likely delayed for the same reason if she had been on the way to, say, a place to get lunch instead of on the way to Tony's lesson?

Is there any relevant object at the place where Sarah stopped? Could she, for the purposes of the puzzle, have stopped at any point on her journey? Is she in some doubt as to whether she wishes to continue to study the piano?

Has she stopped to look at something? To listen to something? (if so, a piano?)

Has she stopped entirely of her own volition? Does some object? or objects? or circumstance? prevent her from continuing her walk? Has she stopped to eat something? Is she unwell?

Tony heard, rather than saw, the evidence that Sarah had stopped?

Tony heard, rather than saw, the evidence that Sarah had stopped? Indeed - if he didn't see it, he definitely heard it.

Was the sound music? Human voice? A car crash? The mothership calling? A sound made by humans? Animals? Man-made objects?

are the objects musical instruments? Is the sound made outside? Indoors? Is it very loud? Does Tony have a reason to believe the sound was made by Sarah?

do the objects make a noise (e.g. noisemakers, buzzers) or is the noise make from their striking each other? Striking something else?

Does Sarah show up holding the objects?

Was it her intention to irritate Tony?
