Giving Him Stick

The musical director was having a lot of trouble with one of the drummers.

Over and over he had talked with the drummer, but his performance simply didn’t improve.

Finally, before a big concert, in front of the assembled orchestra, he said, “When a musician just can’t handle his instrument and doesn’t improve when given help, they take away the instrument, and they give him two sticks, and make him a drummer.”

A whisper was heard from the percussion section: “And if he can’t handle even that, they take away one of his sticks and make him a conductor.”
