I told my student to make sure he was playing the correct pitches. His reply:
Student: I'll take the pitches and put them on my pitchfork. And then I'll have a pitch-kabob, instead of a steak-kabob, and then I'll eat them.
So for that, he got a pitchfork (complete with pitch-kabob) drawn in this dancing cat's paw...
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.
