9 - Scheduling
My student claimed he was going to practice a lot this week:
Student: I get home from school at 3, then I'm going to practice [first piece name] for 12 hours.
Me: So...until 3 in the morning?
Student: Then I'm going to practice [second piece name] for 5 hours.
Me: So until 8 in the morning.
Student: So...then I can practice [third piece name] for...15 minutes, and I'll just be one minute late for school.
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.
