A friend on Facebook linked to the first video on this list and I laughed hysterically when I first watched it. A combination of fond memories and current stresses are mixed together when I see this.
1) I once had a very stern horn teacher who was known for yelling at students and getting a bit gruff.
2) I am a piano teacher who is seeing the days quickly count down to the big annual recital. Those kids REALLY need to get to practicing seriously or I'm gonna have to buy a yard stick!!
And, as a piano player, I have SMALL hands. :)
"I will survive" without the yard stick, I promise myself.
