    Coming from an email this morning:

    “I have the perfect voice for mime.”

    Opening it up to a more general “Funniest Things Students Have Said To You” – my one has to be, I was teaching a young student about 5 years of age and she came in one lesson very quiet. I asked her what was on her mind and she said “I’ve been thinking, you know drain covers – they are like cattlegrids for beetles”. My mind was blown🙂 haha!

    One of the funniest things a student said to me was. “I cant do push ups” Meaning semi tone, tone or 1 1/2 tone bends.

    One that always tickles me:

    “I feel like I’m singing from my throat”

    My response:

    “That’s probably because that’s where your voice box is”

    (*I know they are talking about a genuine problem, but that way of wording it makes me giggle every time)

    I literally had something that made me nearly laugh out loud the other day.

    I was teaching a young girl her first piano lesson and as we are learning the pitch names I was getting her to make words out of the letters e.g bag, cabbage, dad

    I ask her what words she can think of and she sits there for a while thinking, and then says “What about ‘bae’?”
