While I was talking to a student about trombone and the music we were doing, another student stood up very excitedly in the middle of the group lesson.
Student: Mr. Baumgartner, thank you for reminding me!
*I look at her questioningly*
Student: My neighbor is having a garage sale today! I'll hopefully be getting a bike!
I have no idea what I said that reminded her of that...
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.
