A MUM was left fuming after she received an anonymous letter threatening to call the police over her son’s loud music playing.
Anne-Maree Collier, from Brisbane, said that her son Ryan, 15, is an aspiring musician and had been dedicating himself to daily tuba practice during lockdown.

Anne-Maree wrote on Facebook: “To the neighbour who left a note in my letterbox this morning/last night… my son is 15 and homeschooling.
“He generally does his music practice at school which is obviously not an option at the moment.
“He does not practice before 8am & of course practices inside.”
She added that Ryan plays in Queensland’s youth orchestra as well as four other ensembles and hopes to one day be a professional musician.

In the note, the neighbour indicated they’d already reported the tuba to the police and threatened to involve authorities again if the noise didn’t stop.
Anne-Maree continued on Facebook: “I’m sorry his practice annoys you, but suggest you buy earplugs because I will definitely NOT tell him to stop practising.
“What is wrong with you?
“Please call the police and (hopefully) they’ll tell you to pull your head in, too.”
She said the note left her “smoking” and she would not tell her son to stop playing.

After receiving the passive aggressive note, Anne-Maree told A Current Affair: “I was instantly angry, I was fuming.
“We wouldn’t have had a problem changing practice hours, but there was no talking – just the note.”
Ryan added: “I knew there would be some people who wouldn’t like it. But I didn’t know that people would be threatening to call the police.”
Her opinion proved controversial, with some social media users saying the neighbour was out of line while others justified involving the police.
