Taking the Louisville Orchestra auxiliary horn audition. It’s running about 2 hours behind. I would gripe about it, but honestly I feel worse for the committee.
If your child listens to classical music:
- The Haydn Effect: Child is witty and quick on his feet, quite often bringing a grin to the faces of those around him. Despite this he exhibits remarkable humility.
- The Bach Effect: Child memorizes Scripture and says his prayers every day; may overwhelm listeners with his speech.
- The Handel Effect: Much like the Bach Effect; in addition, the child may exhibit dramatic behavior.
- The Beethoven Effect: Child develops a superiority complex and is prone to violent tantrums; is a perfectionist.
- The Liszt Effect: Child speaks rapidly and extravagantly, but never really says anything important
- The Bruckner Effect: Child speaks very slowly and repeats himself frequently. Gains a reputation for profundity.
- The Grieg Effect: This child is quirky yet cheery. May be prone toward Norwegian folklore.
- The Wagner Effect: Child becomes a megalomaniac. Speaks for six hours at a stretch.
- The Schoenberg Effect: Child never repeats a word until he has used all the other words in his vocabulary. Sometimes talk backwards or upside-down. Eventually people stop listening to him. Child blames them for their inability to understand him.
- The Ives Effect: Child develops a remarkable ability to carry on several separate conversations at once.
- The Stravinsky Effect: Child is prone to savage, guttural and profane outbursts that lead to fighting and pandemonium in preschool.
- The Shostakovich Effect: Child only expresses themselves in parent-approved ways.
- The Cage Effect: Childs says exactly nothing for 4 minutes and 33 seconds. Preferred by 9 out of 10 classroom teachers.
- The Glass Effect: Child repeats one word over, and over, and over, and over....
