265 - Sing, Sang, Sung 2
A few months ago one of my students told me I don't have a good singing voice...
Today (hearing a vocal student the next room over)
Student: You should take lessons from her, she sounds good.
*later, after I sang something*
Student: Have you ever taken vocal lessons?
Student: Oh. Because I think even just 1-2 would do you some good.
Teaching is brutal sometimes...
264 - Smound
*I say something the student would have no reason to know*
Student: I know.
Me: ...no you don't...
Student: You're right. But sometimes if you say, "I know" it makes you smound [sic] smarter. Wait... 🤦♂️
He just finished finals yesterday. It was a good lesson...
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.
