*student's trombone slide was having issues moving from greasing it too often [ikr???], so I cleaned it*
Student: So how often do you grease your slide?
Me: I probably *should* every 2-3 weeks, but normally it's a month or month and a half.
Student: Wait, so I'm not supposed to grease it every time I play?!
*insert George Takei "Oh my" here*
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.
