When in doubt, take a stab at it

On my final exam for music appreciation, one of the things I had students do in the course of their essay question was to identify a piece of music from the Romantic period and its composer, and then list a few characteristics that would align it with other works of the period. One student's attempt at identifying a piece and composer was the following:

"An intro to a Art museum" by a russian man

I couldn't, in good conscience, give him any points for that, even though I knew that what he meant to say was Pictures at an Exhibition by Modest Mussorgsky, but it still made me giggle a lot.




Love it.
