  • I taught eight different instruments today!

    The music store that hired me as a guitar/piano teacher was thrilled to know that I could teach other things. So, they've been giving me students for insturments that there are no other instructors for. I get brass and woodwinds as well as the occasional violin or banjo student. But today was a grand slam!
    Out of the nine students that I had today only one was a guitar student. The others were two clarinets students(and I play clarinet dreadfully! ), alto sax, trombone,violin, piano, banjo and harmonica.
    I haven't had a teaching day this rewarding in quite some time. The time just flew by.

    Pretty impressive. I didn't realize you played all those instruments.

    Good stuff.

    (Can I get some kazoo lessons?)

      My first apartment back in 1981 was over top of the music store where I taught guitar. My roommate was the woodwind teacher there. Most of the teachers there were in there 20's or early 30's. So will would all hang out in the apartment all of the time. We would all just sit around drinking coffee(or beer) and jam or taught each other how to play our instruments.

        It's good that you can play all those instruments, and great that you get to do it often. I go long spells on one instument then have to teach myself all over again (now, G on a banjo goes like this.......)

            It's actually the lowest paying out of the three places from which I teach.
            The reason I like it though is because I do get the opportunity to work with interesting students. And they gave me $100 at Christmas. Which was very cool considering I've only worked there on Mondays starting about four months ago.
