[for some reason it came up that I can make pie]
Student: Are you a culinary artist?
Me: Uh...I can bake and cook some, at least.
Student: So on one side you have the culinary part. On the other side you have the musician part. And in the middle is the artistry.
I don't even know what this means.
And I apologize I forgot the pie pun that he made shortly after though.
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.
