Out of the Mouths of Babes…

Kids really do say the darndest things. I am going to attempt to keep track of some of the more amusing ones. Feel free to add any you think deserve notice!

  • One of my piano students, an 8-year-old boy, was having a bad day, overwhelmed by homework, and just not feeling into piano. I asked him if there was anything I could do to help him feel better, and he replies seriously “Not unless you have a dog.” He meant for it to eat his homework. XDThen later he had some root beer and was taking a long slurp. I was trying to get him to hurry up and he says, “I’m sorry, I just really like root beer. My mom likes root beer too, and even my dad likes it. But he likes any kind of beer.” lololol. This kid.
  • A piano student asked me a question one day, something like, “Does this piano have an off switch, or is it solar-powered?”
  • 3rd grade girl asks me: “Can I sit next to Bobby, so I can help him? He’s artistic.”
  • When subbing for a middle school band class at the beginning of the year.
    Me: “Where are my trombones?” *students raise hands* “Saxophones?” etc. Then, to a student without an instrument: “What are you? Where’s your instrument?” Student: “I’m not gonna play an instrument.” Me: “So you’re just gonna sit there and be…nothing?” Student: “I’ll be black.” Me: *mental facepalm*
