that would be in lessons from his golf instructor, eh? 

seems like the logical thing for this guy to do.

would that be with a driver, putter, or sand wedge?

When I was in 1st and 2nd grade the administrators would actually lock me (and anyone else that misbehaved) up in a small room probably about 6 feet diameter that was right inside the office.  Of course, being 7 I didn't know any better.  Years later I told my mom about it and she was pretty upset.  We probably could have had a lawsuit against them.  At least they didn't hit me, but still, not appropriate for a school.  I remember trying to annoy the people that worked in the office by banging on the door nonstop--"I'm going to annoy you until you let me out! HA!"

Anyone remember the paddle? I'll never forget it. No one ever hit me in the head with anything as a form of punishment, though. There's a reason God put our brains in our heads and lots of padding in our backsides, I think.

hmm.... the driver would send him flying. On the other hand, a sand wedge or a putter would hurt.

But I'd rather see  him fly.

Honestly, though, thats one messed up dude. No one should be PUNISHED for not getting something (and someone should also make him aware that drums can't actually feel).

When I was about 8 my brother and I started taking organ lessons from a big-name musician/teacher who played violin and keyboards. At first it went okay but then the guy started yelling at us whenever we made mistakes.
 After a while I simply refused to go to the lessons, and shortly thereafter we stopped w/ this guy. That stayed with me--I really dislike the organ, and have rarely played one since.

Punishment is a great way to get a kid to stop playing music altogether! It sure worked for me, for many years.
