Not hard to say “thank you”

March 1, 2008

Every year I tell my music theory students to not forget to say THANK YOU to their teachers at the end of a course. In fact, to say thank you whenever the opportunity arises — that is, without sounding like a goody-two-shoes. It is so easy, and facilitates friendly interpersonal relationships.

But then, I’m paid by the State of California to teach these students. They are not required to thank me, they paid for the process with no personal strings attached.

But still, it’s nice to be thanked.
