I'm starting teaching private lessons at a new high school next week, so I went and introduced myself to students today and yesterday trying to get them interested in taking lessons from me.
Student 1: [Student 2] wants to challenge you to a trombone battle.
*I play a movement of a solo for the group*
Student 2: Um...I forfeit.
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.
