296 – Short
Asian-American Student: Did I play the rest too short?
Me: Yes. And speaking of things that are too short...
Student (interrupting me): Asians. Asians are too short.
I was just going to say a note was out of tune. 🤦♂️
295 - Incredible...s
In the middle of an online group lesson, I hear this:
Student: Alexa, play The Incredibles Theme Song.
I approve of the music choice, but just...not in the middle of a group 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.
