Pets and Animals of the VS Musicians

Type the phrase “Music hath charms to soothe the savage beast” into your favourite Internet search engine (do it now if you like; we’ll wait), and you’ll discover that it’s a misquote. As musicians, we can attest that animals do respond to music – sometimes in very interesting ways – but as for the charms, we find that the reverse is truer: our “savage beasts” have charms that soothe us sometimes-frazzled musicians. This feature is all about our companion animals; the various fauna that share our homes and occasionally our instrument cases!
