Anyone ever have a terrible teacher? The only ones I've had were orchestra teachers. My middle school teacher once asked me hat a triad was, because she thought I was not paying attention. I replied, "A three-note chord that can be stacked in thirds?" She said wrong, and asked one of the cello players. He said the exact same thing as I did, and she said "Correct." Later that year we had to write a song. She yelled at me for writing my song in 5/8, claiming that "nobody does that." How ignorant. My current teacher is equally as bad. On a song we're playing, I recommended that the basses use drop-d tuning. She said, "That's a stupid idea, it's not in the music!", even though a lower d is written in the music. Yesterday she told the basses to go to drop-d. She said, "Wow, why didn't I think of that before?" I then reminded her that I suggested the idea a week ago. She replied, "That was last week, this is today." I have way more stories from both these teachers, but I don't feel like typing them now. Anyone else?
