Bear with me folks; I have to get this off my chest.

Those of you teaching in the U.S.; the land of milk, honey, and qualified music teachers might find the situation up here in the Great White North a little surprising.

Well...I hate to blame the teachers because they have so much to study and so much to prepare and teach. We both know that some just aren't musically talented. They see music like I see algebra.

I'm a music teacher here and it's way different here in the northeast Region. It's extremely hard to get a music teaching job, it took me eight years! I can't believe they are having classroom teachers do it up there.
