*student changes one note in multiple places in his composition to make it sound much better*
Student: I am the One Note Wonder!
*student changes the note right before another note he had changed, making it sound worse, unbeknownst to him*
Student: I am the Two Note Wonder!
Me: You should probably go back to just being the One Note Wonder.
Student: Hmm, you're probably right, it does have a better ring to it.
Me: It's not just the nickname that needs to go back to what it was before.
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.
