I couldn't practice this week because my cat won't use the litter box unless it's next to the piano.....it smells too bad.

We had testing all week in school....duh, she didn't even have any homework assignments all week.

About 2 years ago, one of my students who had just barely turned 6, was asked to locate different keys on the piano. (He was just learning their locations.) I asked him to locate an "A" key for me. After looking at the keys for a minute and seeming confused, he bent over and started smelling all the keys. When I asked him if he would please show me where an "A" is , he said, "Hang on...I'm sniffing it out."

"Funny" comment from, probably, one of my best students EVER:

"Teacher, I feel Piano Lessons are so more motivating than my other lessons at school!"

"Why?"

"Because at school, the more lessons I have, the more I know. At Piano Lesson, it seems as if each lesson shows me more things that I still don't know!"

The "sniffing it out" is hilarious!
Many years ago as a very young teacher I had a new student, 5 years old, who had already had about 6 months of instruction (in Japan, I think). I asked her to do an exercise I called "airplanes", in which the student closes her eyes, takes any finger (or a finger I ask for) and go "zoom, zoom, zoom" around in the air and "land" on a key, then name it. I gave her those instructions. She follosed them preciselg, then named the note. Imagine my astonishment when she DID NOT OPEN HER EYES to name it: I hadn't told her to! I asked her to repeat this several times, and she was correct every time! We BOTH cried when she went back to Japan at the end of the year!

My little student was much more accurate than my typing: sorry! \:\(
