Man, I'm bummed out. frown

My teacher just called me and told me he can't teach me for a while. Apparently, he has 45 performances setup and can't handle all his students. So, he recommended another teacher that is 20 minutes farther away. I'm not sure what to do now. frown

I just hope I didn't drive him away with my crappy playing. laugh

Aw . . .

I'm so sorry!

Can't he come up with more names than that?

It might be best to start from scratch on a teacher search . . .

sorry to hear that. maybe you could do some self-teaching too while looking for other teachers. it's better to check out your next teacher before signing up with him/her.

Well,

I called the recommended teacher. She only teaches classical style. frown I was hoping for all genres (pop, rock, jazz, blues, etc) like my last teacher.

Anyway, I'm giving a month to try it out.

Keeping my fingers crossed this works out.

There oughta be a law, Cindy? If the shoe were on my foot I might even consider killing myself! frown I hope this helps some wink

Seriously, it would be interesting to hear a few more details. His reasons may be legitimate and he may be and most likely is bummed himself that he had to make the call. In any event, I do sympathize with your situation but remember, what may seem as a set-back now may present a better opportunity for you in the near future, I strongly expect this will be the case.

PS Your signature is telling Devil4ever, the very best to you.

I am just wondering ... why some people like to associate themselves with devils ???


An apple a day keep the doctor away,
A smile a day chase your sadness away,
A chat a day drive all loneliness away,
And a prayer a day never keep our Jesus away
And let's praise our Lord, our King, our God all the way ....

Who in turn, I believe, were named after that mythical elusive "Jersey Devil" a Bigfoot, Abominable Snowman creature of the South Jersey Pines.

I was afraid you meant Blue Devils, as in Duke.

I have dibs on being Markb's manager. I take 10% off the top; more when he's not paying attention.

We've got to do something about that stage name, though. "marcb." It has a certain understated simplicity about it, granted. But it needs some umph, you know.

Mark Moyd, perhaps?

:blushing: First of all, I'm flattered--no one's ever offered to exploit me for money! Therefore, Cindy, take 20%! Heck, I'm feeling generous today--make it 30%!

Secondly, it's not "marcb", it's "markb". And the "k" is silent.

I belive the name "Mark Moyd" should first be offered to markjpcs for all of his hard work on the MOYD database.

HEY! WAIT A MINUTE!! I thought *I* was the one who was going to be the star, and markb was acting as my manager. Remember, he was going to sell tickets to my one-man show! :b:

I feel slighted. I've been stabbed in the back by my fans and manager alike. :b:

I'm out of show business. From now on, I'll only do one-on-one private requests for shows. wink

It's very simple, Jerry. I manage you and Cindy manages me. Are you afraid of a little bureaucracy? If so, don't worry about it--that's what we who live in/near D.C. specialize in. (I couldn't figure out how not to end that sentence with a prepsosition.) And as for your private request shows--I get a cut of the take since I made you the big shot you are today. Otherwise, I'll see to it that you never work in this town again!

No problem. I'll have to wait until next week to meet the new teacher. Maybe it will be good to get another perspective. (At least that's what I keep telling myself.) frown
