music lessons aren't cheap & neither are concert tickets. that's probably why music teachers can charge a premium & there will still be a queue for their services.
the boy started learning cello a few months back & he seems to enjoy himself with the lessons & his new-found talent (i use this term this loosely). as each session lasts only 30 mins, i usually send him & then wait for him to finish. then i pay the teacher, as & when he has the lesson.
i just started to joke with him.
me: you know, your teacher is like a money changer
him: how come?
me : every time i give her some money, she changes a smaller note for me.
