A student too often starts lessons with, "So here's the thing..." and then gives an excuse for not practicing.
Student: So here's the thing...
Student: I'm sorry, I know I always have an excuse for not practicing, but it was Easter.
Apparently Easter was four days long this year...
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.
