Can't get mysql_query to work inside foreach loop

P: 1
I can`t get this block of code to work. I think there is something wrong with my syntax, but I can`t figure out what it is.

source code look like this:
array('stemme'=>'$ftenor', 'ref'=>'1.tenor', 'patch'=>'$ft'),
array('stemme'=>'$atenor', 'ref'=>'2.tenor', 'patch'=>'$at'),
array('stemme'=>'$fbass', 'ref'=>'1.bass'), 'patch'=>'$fb',
array('stemme'=>'$abass', 'ref'=>'2.bass'), 'patch'=>'$ab'); foreach($stemmer as $klasser) {
$query = "SELECT * FROM kor WHERE stemme=' ".$klasser['ref']." ' ";
$klasser['stemme'] = mysql_query($query) or die(mysql_error());

while( $klasser['patch']= mysql_fetch_array($klasser['stemme'])) {
[/php] etc.

when i try to use my "$klasser['stemme']" later in the script, i get:

Warning: mysql_fetch_array(): supplied argument is not a valid MySQL result

Im new to PHP and MySQL so for all i know, the error might be fundamental. Is it even possible to use MySQL inside a foreach loop?

Please enclose your posted code in [code] tags (See How to Ask a Question).

This makes it easier for our Experts to read and understand it. Failing to do so creates extra work for the moderators, thus wasting resources, otherwise available to answer the members' questions.

Please use [code] tags in future.
