I made my daughter be aboused. After what I spent to rent a sax that year there was no way I was letting her back out of class. She told me within two weeks her band teacher thumped her nose and "didnt like her."
I noted the fact her nose was the same size as ever (though tilted upwards with indignation)and asked
"and why does he not like you?" to wich she replied "he says I never practice."
So???? She didnt either. Liked to show the shiny stuff off but not actually get into playing it.
I am so glad I did not let her off the hook.
Band is now her joy and she is a pretty good sax player today.
