9 Goofy Things Voice Students SayVoice students say the darndest things! And my students are no exception. Over the past couple of years I've collected their antics and funny comments. Here, without further ado, are 9 goofy things my voice students have said:

You know you're old when...

A: *takes out smart phone and hits the button* Siri, who is “Milli Vanilli”?

Do I have a wobble?!

T: *looks at me wide-eyed.* Nicole, your vibrato…it scares me.

Confessions of a high schooler:

D: (whispered) I like orchestra better than band!

 

Kids say the darndest things:

G: (singing from “The Cherry Tree” original lyrics "They sing of the frozen rivers...") They sing of the frozen livers…

 

Me: (reading from sheet music) Steht der Strauch…

E: What’s that word?

Me: Strauch.

E: *shakes head slowly* No…

Teenaged Disdain:

Me:  Can you imagine if the producers of "Hamilton" hadn't done so much work to audition the cast? And there were other singer-actors in it?

M:  Gross...

 

The Foot Bone's Connected to the Ankle Bone:

G:  I thought about it in my brain.

 

P (trying a new way of pronouncing words while singing):  That feels weird in my mouth.

 

If music be the food of love, sing on...

W: Solfeggio. I like that word. It sounds like a cheese.
