169 - Fred
I showed up to a student's lesson, and he had a Lego knight on his piano, with a shield attached to his helmet. He told me his name was Fred.
Student: Can we write a song about [attempting to sing] Fred Who Has a Shield on His Helmet. . .on His Heeeeead???
I regret to inform you that we did not write a song about Fred.
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.
