People assume that because I am a violin, viola, and piano teacher, my children play those instruments. My kids do, sort of, but not really.
Today, one of my student's parents asked my son if he played piano. Here's how that conversation went:
"Your mommy is a piano teacher. Do you play piano, too?"
"No," my son said, holding his Nintendo DSI.
"What about the violin?"
"Well, do you play anything?"
"Yeah. I play the computer."
"Oh," the lady said. "Do you practice that a lot?"
"No. I'm an expert. I don't need to practice!"
