317 – Too Easy
Student: One kid at my school almost played trumpet, but then decided to do choir instead, because he said trumpet is too easy, because it only has three notes.
He has a point. No more excuses, trumpet players. 😆
316 – Business Cards
*I hand business cards to students*
Student [looking at my picture on card]: Was this from when you were like 20? Your haircut and beard are different. You look so cool.
It's literally the same haircut and beard.
315 – How Embarrassing
Student (not having played trombone much since the spring):
It's gonna be embarrassing having a fancy trombone and not fancy trombone skills.
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.
