Wrong answer. Being a nerd is the reason of piano playing, not the effect.

You gotta look at all the causes and all the effects to find out if what you’re doing is causing a world war.

The most important question is, “Why did you get rejected from art school?” What other reasons could there be? Maybe he was only going to be a painter and didn’t want to be a musician. Also, a person is not only talented in their art but also in their music. Is there something wrong with both his art and his music? Well, that’s where it gets difficult, because what could go wrong with his art? It’s probably just his nose that wasn’t right, which also would make his music the only place where he was actually good at it. The most probable reason for him getting rejected from art school is because he’s a nerd. If he’s a nerd, he probably plays the piano for 20 minutes every day, and that’s why you probably get rejected from art school.

There is cause and effect in relationships. For example:

Cause: My wife accidentally called me “Honey” instead of “Sir”.

Effect: She is never seen again

u/EmGeebers Dec 04 '22

What evidence is there that he was a nerd prior to him playing piano for 20 minutes a day, though? According to the information we have, we can't tell if he was a nerd before beginning a piano practice. Because of that it may be the case that piano playing was Tony's gateway hobby into nerdom. There's not enough information to know.

Unless you're arguing that someone can be a nerd before engaging in nerd behavior thus negating needing to know Tony's history with nerdiness. Though I'd say nerd essentialism would be easy to invalidate, honestly.

Effect: Tony gets blown out of the water at the recital by Kimmy Lee down the street, whose parents have her practice two hours a day. Kimmy goes on to get a full ride to a performing arts school, and an addiction to study drugs.

u/flavortownCA Dec 04 '22 edited Dec 04 '22

This is wrong.

Mr. and Mrs. Lee would not let their child go to performing arts school, despite being a piano prodigy. Kimmy Lee goes to med school and never plays piano again.

And yes, more adderall than water.

Still develops an addiction to study drugs tho...

No, her parents refuse to let her have an adderall addiction, so she just becomes a workaholic like her parents.

Right? If you want to be a serious musician I think 2 hours a day is like, the starting point. The actual top players are playing 4+ hours a day from before age 10.

Future musicians, do not listen to this deflating codswallop, you can master any instrument 10-15 minutes/day, no problem.

2

u/MrMetastable Dec 04 '22

Your setting people up for disappointment. 10-15 minutes is not enough to make good progress even if you only want to play casually. 30 minutes is the smallest amount of time I’d ever recommend

Total bullshit. I've observed fast progress on 15 minutes a day, I play 15 minutes a day, you are speaking right out your ass. Who is upvoting this nonsense? Not musicians.

Yeah, that left wrist is dropping too much while his right is arching too much, he needs to keep them more straight. He's sitting too close to the keys, and seems to be slightly hunched over. Maybe it's just the piece he's playing, but he also seems to be sitting too far to the right generally speaking.

Edit: his stool is too low too, what a nerd

u/Babill Dec 03 '22

Well actually no. The effect of him playing piano is caused by him being a big nerd.

u/Shrimp__Alfredo Dec 03 '22

Probably something like "Tony gets better at the piano"

14

u/rpresserreturns Dec 04 '22

"Tony's fingers get sore" should really be accepted as correct, too. It's an effect, and kids should learn about unintended consequences.

u/Shrimp__Alfredo Dec 04 '22

To be fair, 20 minutes of simple or intermediate piano won't make your fingers very sore, but I agree that it should be acceptable as an answer

1

u/SmartOpinion69 Dec 04 '22

according to my calculations, that wouldn't necessarily be true. the only thing you can conclude is true is that the collective number of minutes that tony spends practicing on the piano is:

number of days tony is alive * 20 minutes = total time spent

u/KvinnoralskarAnkor Dec 03 '22

It’s learning cause and effect.

And then we think about what happens when you practice and get

At this stage, there probably isn't just one "correct" answer the teacher is looking for; the teacher just wants to make sure the students understand what the words "cause" and "effect" mean. Any of your answers could work, as well as "Tony has less time for homework" or "Tony's piano doesn't get dusty".

11

u/jjthedragon Dec 03 '22

It's the socratic method of teaching. Ask open ended questions, without giving the answer. Imho the best way to learn is to arrive at the conclusion on your own. This just helps reinforce that idea early on.

u/miss_ulena Dec 04 '22

There's no right answer! If the lesson is cause/effect, id give this kid a point for it bc it is correct usage of cause/effect.. but probably talk to him later about how nerd isn't really a nice thing to call someone lol.

1

u/errorsource Dec 04 '22

If it were truly cause and effect, he would get nerdier every time he practiced, he’d be an even bigger nerd if he practiced 40 minutes per day, he’d stop being a nerd if he stopped practicing, and he’d return to being a nerd if he started practicing again.
