VFD seems to have specific skill sets it values and passes down, and the various children throughout the series are educated on them. The reason I bring this up is that you recently quoted The Grim Grotto's 6th chapter, and it mentions "famous musicians", and yet we see no music outside of Vice Principle Nero! Do you have any thoughts on this, such as missing musicians, ones we may have overlooked, etc.?
Lemony is famous for playing the accordion. Gustav Sebald wrote musicals. Isaac Anwhistle and Beatrice Baudelaire knew how to whistle with crackers in their mouth.
It’s true that there are not many musicians mentioned in V.F.D.’s lore, but it’s possible they teach it as a hobby rather than a survival skill.
