Me: I don't like sitting down during lessons. I sit enough as is.
Student: Sitting down all the time is why Americans are Americans.
Student: I don't know why anyone would want to be a dentist. Everyone hates going to dentists. So no one should want to be one. They should have a draft instead. Like a military draft. So when a dentist gets old and dies, the government will just tell someone, "You're going to be a dentist now."
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.
