Sweet new job!

So I got this excellent gig teaching masterclasses at Pearland High School. I get to teach a section of bass clarinet players (about 6 of them) for two hours a day for two weeks. It's going to be kind of scary because I've never taught anything before at all, but I've certainly got enough experience taking classes and lessons.... Of course, my professor walked me through everything I need to do. He is honestly the reason I've gotten half of my music related jobs; sometimes, when a teaching or playing job comes up that he is too busy for or just doesn't want, he gives people the name of one of his students and then we get called. He's the best teacher I could ever ask for and I can only hope that one day my students will have the same love and respect for me.
But yeah. Wish me luck! I'll have to find somewhere between aloof teacher and too- relatable student teacher (I'm only 19, so I'm not far in age from them). I'll be lots of fun and I'm sure I'll learn an incredible amount by trying to teach the same things to other people. Can't wait!
