I’ve not done a student quote of the day in a LONG time. When my student gave me the answer he gave today, though, I laughed and said, “Oh you get to be my Student Quote of the Day!”

I only post these when a student makes me laugh or says something profound (yes, both happen). This student is a true joy to teach, and his very quick response to my question was fun.

Me: What does leggiero mean?
Timothy: It means to play with legs!

He also noted that he had both of his legs.

So thanks, Timothy, for making me laugh today. Thank you even more for being such a fine student … not only are you witty but you are a very good musician!

he: “Oh ANY time of day!” … pause “Just not in the morning!”

I’ve had bad experiences with tempo primo.

(This may not be true. I’ll have to listen to it when they put it online. But I’ve started a “Spoken Quote of the Day due to this. If I’m wrong I promise you I’ll correct myself!)

You literally grew up under his wing.

Did I really just hear that, or am I dreaming it?
