Are the noise-making items in Sarah's pocket? Purse/satchel? Somewhere else on Sarah?
Is anyone accompanying Sarah? If no humans, any animals?

So...it is correct that Sarah didn't intend to irritate Tony, but she could have anticipated that she would do?

Did she plan her action? Do something impulsively?

Did Sarah herself strike something, as opposed to her causing one thing to strike another?

Is it the case that she did not have the objects she made the noise with on her when she arrived for her lesson? had she left them in place? Moved them? Would it have been possible to move them?

Were the noise-making items located in Tony's building? Were they items that were designed to make contact with each other and make a certain type of noise? Or was this not what they were designed to do?
Did Sarah intentionally produce the noise? Was it an accident? Was she intending to do something else, and the noise was a side effect?

The exact number of noise-making items relevant? If yes, was it 1? 2? [insert LTPF list of +ve integers here]?

Do these noise-making items belong to Tony?

Is Tony being angry at Sarah justifiable? Or was he being unreasonably angry at whatever Sarah had done?

Is Tony simply irritated by the noise? Does it give him a headache? Trigger some kind of painful memory? Affect his mindset so that he is not in the mood to give a music lesson?

Wild guess Did Sarah pull the fire alarm?

Has [Sarah] stopped entirely of her own volition? noish to yope

Trying to clarify the above: Did Sarah somehow felt compelled to stop, even though she would have been physically able to continue to Tony's? If yes, was the reason why Sarah felt compelled to stop based on a misunderstanding on her part?

I was hoping that the 'wild guess' would not be so wild, the fire alarm idea is a good one

When Sarah caused the noise, had she broken something? Caused something to do what it was not designed to do? Negatively affected Tony in some way? Made someone sad? angry? excited?

Did Sarah activate some kind of alarm?
Was the noise made by some object owned by Tony? Owned by someone else in the building? Not owned by anyone there?
Was the object some kind of building fixture?
Was the object electronic? battery powered? not powered at all except by pressure of some type exerted on it?
Had Sarah ever seen the object before this day? Did she know upon seeing it what it was? Did she feel inclined to investigate it? Was the object in a hallway? foyer? stairway? bathroom? kitchen? gathering area? classroom? some other place?
