*student looks at Japanese title under English title "Honeybee"*
Student: Is that Chinese? Because that doesn't make sense to have a song about honeybees in China. They [the bees] all died from the pollution there.
Student [completely serious]: Japan and China are basically the same. Except the religions are different. And the languages. And I guess a lot of other things are different too.
I have been teaching music across the Twin Cities since 2011. Along with seeing students grow as musicians and people, one of the joys of teaching is the ridiculous things my students say.
