Last week my student threw my mechanical pencil back to me without pushing the graphite back in first, and I jokingly said I could've been stabbed.
*I throw pencil to student*
Student: Aaggh, ow!! It stabbed me!!
Student: Jk, because THAT DOESN'T HAPPEN.
Two from my first student today:
*I demonstrate a low F with my F-attachment*
Student: How can you play that so loud [it wasn't that loud]??
*student tries and gets his a little louder*
Student: We should have an F-off! Wait...no...
*student finds out I'm vegetarian two weeks after giving me a Chick Fil A gift card*
Student: Oh, you don't look vegetarian. You look like a man who would eat all the animals in the world.
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.
