The Professor is the conductor, the students are the musicians. The orchestra can only be as good as the musicians.

I like this better than the model that has the professor as the performer and the class as the audience.

I like the model where the professor is the "teacher" and the class is the "students".

I don't like "teaching" at all as a metaphor for "teaching." It just doesn't tell me anything.

Good students sometimes do startling and unexpected things. I'm not sure how true this is of good orchestral violinists.

I always literally teach.
