  4. Today I had to say goodbye to my teacher of 3 years.

    He was probably the best teacher I could have asked for in my high school music career; even though I’m going on to college and will study under plenty of others throughout my life, I will miss him and always be grateful for all of the help, advice, and guidance he gave me. Though I’m excited for music school, at this moment I can’t imagine having lessons with anyone else after seeing him almost every Saturday for the past three years. Nevertheless, I know he has prepared me well, and I’m confident our paths will cross again in the future.

    This has been a teacher appreciation post~

Cat Conducts Entire Orchestra While Asleep
Giovanni, a cat who studies at the local music academy, has apparently come down with a case of “sleep conducting.”
“Oh, it’s totally a real thing,” confirmed academy provost Alex Dawson. “Sometimes, our students will become so engrossed in their studies, that they’ll start performing in their sleep.  Giovanni’s case is rather advanced, though.  It’s rare that we see someone conduct such a long piece, from start to finish, while asleep.”
According to doctors, Giovanni should make a full recovery.
