In this delightfully humorous post, Billie Whittaker shares some collaborative piano humor. She shares some humorous tendencies she has observed in collaborative pianists — such as having advanced photocopying skills, and possessing strong opinions on the ‘use of plastic music protectors’ debate. She goes on to share some of her own quirks — such as keeping a metronome in her purse at all times (I’m not the only one!!).
I’m so glad to hear I’m not the only one who does these things! =D
She also shares this joke:
A pianist and singer are rehearsing “Autumn Leaves” for a concert and the pianist says: “OK. We will start in g minor and then on the third bar, modulate to B major and go into 5/4. When you get to the bridge, modulate back down to f# minor and alternate a 4/4 bar with a 7/4 bar. On the last A section go into double time and slowly modulate back to g minor.”
