Cyril Scott in London - the 1900's

from Bone of Contention: Life Story and Confessions, page 123:

I also had one or two piano pupils, among them a gloomy young man who came to the lessons without having adequately practised, and who would lose his temper when he bungled passages, the effect on me being that I wanted to laugh, and had to push my chair further and further back from the piano so that he could not see my merriment.
