Voice 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?
E: *shakes head slowly* No…
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?
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.
