Complete the Caption

What's happening here? Is it a violin lesson gone off the rails? Did a string break? Was that last passage just too out of tune for the harried teacher? How would you caption this photo?

I'll publish your suggestions on Saturday, and I can't wait to see what you come up with!

Violinist in disgrace: (to viewer) "I botched the fingering on the Bach Partita again..so I don't mind the punishment so much.... it's just that I'm allergic to rosin."

You call that allegro, here is a proper allegro.

Miss Smythington paused, having just realized that her precocious pupil had been misbehaving on purpose so she could "earn" a weekly spanking.

What to do? Send her to bed without supper, or giver her a REAL thrashing.

Maybe this will help you keep better time. Now count with me ... 1 ... 2 ... 3 ... 4 ... 1 ... 2 ... 3 ... 4 ...

Your lack of practice has resulted in you producing nothing but squawking sounds that torture my ears every time you draw that bow across those strings. Now it's my turn to use this bow to torture your rear and produce squawking sounds that are music to my ears.

After that performance it's time you learned a new bowing technique that should help you focus better next time.

Unfortunately I am not good at these.

Regardless, I do love the expressions, especially the distraught look on the one girl about to be thrashed.
Would love to see the "after" picture effect of that bow.

Best,
Enzo

Stephanie is an excellent violinist and practices 4 hours every day. She is just getting whipped for not eating her vegetables.
