I’m very thankful for Dr. Doneski, the amazing program director of the Gordon Graduate Music Education program. I’m learning so much!
The card is based on a music education pun. A big movement in music education is developing the ear (teaching by rote) before reading sheet music. You’ll always hear Dr. Doneski advocate teaching “rote before note”.
The card says “rote” and “note”.
That’s why it’s funny.
I think human imperfection looks really interesting, so I intentionally did as much as I could on this card by hand–except for cutting the base card (to contrast all the other handcut lines), and punching out music notes. I used a paint sample card to get just the right poppy color.
