A piano playing cat has been helping students feel more at ease with learning music.

Jasper, who lives outside Glasgow with his owner Laura Elliott, has been helping piano students unwind as they get to grips with the musical instrument.

The two-year-old cat waits on students to start playing, prior to getting on the secrets and participating with his own variation.

Laura, 29, informed PA: “I utilized to feed him when he did this, so now he thinks if he acts up he’ll get fed.

” He simply does not care. He’ll lie across the keys when we are playing.

” He goes outside and he could be miles away however he will hear the piano start playing and he understands that that’s his hint.”

On one celebration, Laura attempted positioning Jasper outside after he became too disruptive. However, he refused to take no for a response, and miaowed loudly up until a passerby buzzed him back into Laura’s structure.
