A 1979 National Film Board project by Richard Condie illustrates what happened in nearly every practice session Miss Mussel undertook no matter what the instrument. There were only two situations in which good, productive practice was guaranteed to happen.
1) Miss Mussel was overcome by a significant amount of terror regarding what would happen if she didn’t practice. This happened rarely.
2) She was supposed to be practicing another instrument or writing a paper.
