One of my students is in one of the bands my older brother directs.
Me: What are your goals for lessons?
Student: To finish this book so I can make it into the next band.
Me: Ok, what's keeping you from finishing that?
Student: Your brother.
Glad he has a sense of humor.
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.
