In my last post, I said I would never touch a student work with a red pen. Not being one for dogma, today I found myself scribbling on a student’s piece in red ink. I have a good excuse: tomorrow is the deadline to submit works for our upcoming composition juries, and this particular piece had some notational issues – nothing too serious, but a number of details that needed clarification.

So I make the rules, and I break them.
