Just because I’m a music education major does not mean that I am a lousy musician. It is really frustrating when people think that because I try so hard to be the best performer I can be in addition to the best teacher I can be. I am very aware of our demanding and busy degree program, but my colleagues that put their musicianship on the back burner gives all of us a bad reputation and it is really irritating.
I AGREE WITH THIS WHOLE-HEARTEDLY
Okay yes having good grades doesn’t necessarily mean you’re smart but can we please not demean people who do get good grades because it is incredibly difficult and stressful for a lot of people and saying they “aren’t really smart” is really insulting to those who actually try really hard.
the other day my music theory teacher asked my class if we were tired and the whole class yelled YES so he flipped off the light switch and said “then go to sleep” and then just left the room omfg
more recently we got to class and he said to this kid isaac “you hungry?” and he was like yeah so everyone chipped in some cash and we just ordered a pizza
he gives everyone a piece of chocolate at the beginning of every class period
This is why music teachers are the coolest.
