I promise I am going to blog soon about the Wonderful Nerd Conference. It's just that my folder with all my quotes on it is in my car and I'm too lazy/busy to get it out. In good time, my friends, in good time.
But for a quick tide-you-over, let me share this adorable (at least I think so) quote from one of my piano students:
We often do some improv at the end of a lesson to wind down and let the kids' creative juices flow. So at my last lesson with this child, I asked the student if he or she knew what improvising meant. They replied, "Yeah! It's when you're having people over for dinner and you want to serve mashed potatoes but they get ruined so instead you have to serve apples."
Yes. Yes, my child, that is what improvising is. Very good.
