About the Composition 

A theatrical piece featuring a High-maintenance Aural Theory Student (HATS) and a bass-playing Professor Of Theory (POT).

A dramatic scene between an ear-training professor, giving a make-up dictation exam on the bass, and a high-maintenance student who keeps interrupting. “The tension was palpable.”
