Teacher: Welcome to math class. 2 + 2=4 – 1. Quick maths! Okay. Today we learn about… Oh my God! High school’s so boring. All these useless subjects… √ -1? You can’t because it’s negative. How the hell do you multiply two things and get a negative number? Don’t know- No, I’m not going to square root a negative number
in my daily life. Thank you very much. *Sigh* I can’t wait to get to music university where I can focus all my time
on practicing and getting better. *Expectation* Professor: Uh, go from variation 3 again. And this time raise your elbows a bit more. Wow, thanks professor. Teacher: Brett Yang! You! Brett Yang! Yes! Tell me what the quadratic formula is. Don’t look at the book. A=440? Huh?! DETENTION! Welcome first years,
and welcome to your very first.. Improv and movement class, where I shall be teaching you the beauty of how to feel and express music better through your physical movements. We shall be improvising some dance to Beethoven Symphony 5 right now. *Beethoven 5th Symphony plays* Alright guys, class is finished for today. Remember to shake that booty. Ugh finally, I can go practice now. Oh wait. Let me check my timetable again. Oh no. Now I’ve oral lecture. Welcome to oral 101. Today I will be dictating some South Indian rhythm (Ref: Konnakol with staff notation by Manjunath B.C) And I’ll need you to um… Practice orally singing in this Icelandic folk tune. I thought I came to music uni to get lessons and practice. I didn’t get a student loan for this. Yes. Welcome to music uni.
