45 - Perfection
Student: I forgot to fill out the practice chart you wanted me to fill out...but I did practice!
Me: Well...I'll accept that if you play *piece name* perfectly.
Student: Buuuut I can't play anything perfectly. Only you play trombone perfectly.
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.
