Why is a piano so hard to open? And why is slippery ice like music?
We’ll give you answers to these questions in just a little while, but first let us introduce this blog’s topic: musical jokes. We will start with silly jokes kids tell and then move on to more, um, mature ones adults laugh at.
Why are we telling jokes all of a sudden? Well, doctors tell us that laughing is good for us. As Charlie Chapin (who certainly knew a thing or two about humor) said, “A day without laughter is a day wasted.”
So without further ado, let’s start laughing!
The answer to the first question above (why is a piano so hard to open?) is: “Because the keys are on the inside.” And the response to the second one, “why is slippery ice like music,” is “if you don’t C sharp, you’ll B flat!” Hey, we never said they were good jokes!
Here are some other ones:
Now let’s continue chuckling at jokes grown-ups tell.
Going up the age ladder, here are some music-related jokes that adults find funny:
“You have, Your Honor,” the man answered hopefully. “I gave your son violin lessons last winter.”“Ah, yes,” recalled the judge. “Twenty years!”
Your music teacher – the one who will never get in…treble!
Joking aside, teaching music is no laughing matter, but it certainly doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be fun and enjoyable too. The teacher we will send to your Manhattan, Brooklyn or Riverdale home or office will never be dull, dour and humorless – though cracking jokes is not exactly part of her job description (neither is taking care of lighting, so we don’t really know how many music teachers it takes to change a lightbulb).
The teachers’ primary goal is to instruct, guide, inspire, and motivate their students. So if you ever hear the one about the teacher who showed up at your doorstep with his musical instrument in hand, that is no joke, it’s real life!
