Tell me about your favorite teachers. Why did you like them? Here are mine:
Mr. C. I had him for History. He was an oldschool champion. His speech on the first day of class was about time. He said your time is precious, and you should sell your time. (Make something of yourself.) He didn't teach from the book, instead he talked about life, politics, and money. He taught everyone about compound interest, stocks, politics ect. He also told us some saucy stories from his younger years when he was more wild. He was a great man.
Mr. S. I had him for sociology. On the last day of class, he told everyone in class one special thing he saw in them. He told me "You've got "it". Whatever "it" is, you've got it. You're going places." I'll never forget that. The guy was a champion.
Mrs. D. She taught English class. She was the first one who really believed in my writing. For creative writing project, most kids wrote maybe 3 pages. I wrote 25 LOL. She encouraged me after that to continue and she was a beautiful soul.
Eric my first guitar teacher. What a cool guy. All I wanted to do was learn some bass to play in punk bands, but he said nah fuck that, you're learning Metallica! He encouraged me, and believed in my playing. He instilled in me the confidence that pushed me forward towards more advanced music.
John my other guitar teacher. This guy was just plain awesome. He taught me so much about jazz, and music theory. Every time I play Autumn Leaves, I think of him, and jamming with him in that small practice room on campus.
What about you guys, who are your favorite teachers?
