Kids Say the Darnedest Things About Their Holiday Music, and Their Directors Respond in Kind
KID: I don't understand why we're playing sixth-grade music. DIRECTOR: "Sleigh Ride" is not sixth-grade music, unless your sixth-grade director was an idiot...which is possible.
(After that the director and i were imagining "Sleigh Ride" as played
by sixth-graders: I noted how slow it would be if played in whole notes,
while he pictured a beginner's attempt to play the "real" version: "OK
buddy, more air.")
