Drummer problems

A musical director was having a lot of trouble with one drummer. He talked and
talked and talked with the drummer, but his performance simply didn’t improve.

Finally, before the whole 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 give him two sticks, and make him a drummer.”

A stage 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.”
