Wit & Wisdom from the
Students of Daniel Light
Teaching piano is my passion and my career. Students frequently delight me with their comments--often hilarious, sometimes witty, occasionally sweet and tender. Here are some of those gems.
“My grandma gave me a Coke that expired in 2017.
“I saw ‘naked’ in the dictionary today.”
“May the fourth be with you.”
–3rd grader, just before playing a piece that began with the interval of a fourth.
“I left my piano books in the car all week, and mom said I could wear mascara to the father-daughter dance tonight.”
“Today was opposite day.”
“How did you participate?”
“I combed my hair.”
“I think I’m growing in my hip.”
“You know there are invisible unicorns, right? That’s how you can sneak them into school.”
“Know why I wanted to learn cello when I was little? ‘Cause it rhymes with jello.”
“I bought a cactus.”
–10th grader, while playing, apropos of nothing
“Oh, yeah, I ate a carrot while I was practicing yesterday.”
