"....No, how much did you really practice. " has become my mantra.

 

Another one with a huge turnover is 'Oops, let's back up and try that again' (think I heard that about 20,000 times between fourth grade and senior year of college)

Then the other week I had a kid who wasn't quite getting it (appeared more like he didn't want to get it): Me: "Okay, this time curve your fingers.... Well, not quite like a hunched claw though". So of course he became fascinated with his 'hunched claw' creation :laugh:

'Someday, we'll look back on these days and laugh; likely a maniacal laugh from our padded cells, but a laugh nonetheless' - Mr. Boffo.

LOL. This is hilarious. I play in several bands with retired and active music teachers. Some of them just can't stop teaching.

 

Those guys forgot "Play in the bottom of the beat"

 

The best teacher I ever had used to say, "only 10% of the music is on the page". Wish I had had the opportunity to study with him more.

LMAO. As someone that got into a lot trouble I heard a few:

 

Dont come here to practice

The 3rd finger not the 4th finger

Not so fast

Just because you can do something doesnt mean you should

 

"Danny, ci manchi a tutti. La E-Street Band non e' la stessa senza di te. Riposa in pace, fratello"
