Well, I had one clue today. A father of one of my students asked me if I ever read blogs. And he asked me if I read any good ones. He carefully wrote down the addresses to hoarded ordinaries and urban semiotic. (HI DAVID!! WHY DO YOU ALWAYS TALK TO ME IN CAPS? :mrgreen:) So, I have been carefully printing suzanne1.wordpress.com on all of my student’s violin study sheets (discreetly at the bottom). And I just wonder, do they visit? And it has changed the way I approach posting on this blog. I tend to treat it more seriously.
So on a lighter note, here is the LucyCam! Yes, now you too can enjoy the blessings of Lucy’s presence without leaving the comfort of your own computer. I look over and there she is. Click on the link, and you can look over and see her too! I need to have a comment section on that page… (I wonder how on earth to do that!) Hmmm…. Can you just comment here?
Lucy does leave the room while I teach. She doesn’t enjoy the overtones of the violin and double-stops drive her crazy. The piano doesn’t bother her, but she leaves the room while I teach. My students think it’s funny. Sometimes she complains about the overtones too and they laugh.
Hi students! (waving) Did you listen to your CD today?? (The ever-bugging teacher)
OH hey – something funny happened during a lesson today. One of my students superglued his shoulder rest together, so when I tried to put it on his violin, it fell apart and I got superglue all over my hands! I felt like the butt of a really funny practical joke (and although I was reassured that that was not the case, I still have my doubts). So I had to clean off the superglue with fingernail polish remover and a good 5 minutes of lesson time were *blam* obliterated. I wonder what clever time wasting scheme will be cooked up for next week…
OK jokesters. Back at it.
