  • Hi, Mr. Chin.

  • Oh, hi, Brett.

  • I sure hope you practiced this week, even though I know you probably didn't.

  • Oh, don't worry; you're right.

  • I didn't practice because I hate practicing.

  • And this time, I'm gonna make a blatant excuse and say that my school has too many assignments for me.

  • I know that's a bullshit excuse, but I have no way of proving it.

  • And therefore, I have no choice but to accept it.

  • But you do realize that by not practicing, these lessons are basically a waste of time and money, right?

  • Yeah, I know, but it's not my money.

  • I really do wonder, why do you come to lessons?

  • Mum thinks keeping me busy and away from the computer and bad influences is a good idea.

  • I actually don't want to be here, I just want to go home and play computer games.

  • Oh myod, same!

  • I totally don't want to be here right now, but I kind of need the money, so I'm just going to smile and teach you.

  • Anyway, enough talk.

  • Why don't we start with that piece you've been playing for over one year now?

  • Hungarian Dance No. 5?

  • Wow, Brett, you're such a consistent player; you sound just as bad as you did last week.

  • This part is really hard.

  • I don't understand it.

  • I don't want to play it.

  • Now, I'm going to ask you to practice slowly,

  • but I don't even know why I bother, since I've given you the same feedback over every lesson of the last 2 months, but you never listen.

  • I know, but I just want to play it fast.

  • You know, if you can play it slowly, you can play quickly!

  • That's okay, let me use the next 60 minutes, not as a teacher, but as a practice supervisor.

  • One, two

  • One bar in! Listen to my instructions, oh my God!

  • Three, four.

  • One, two, three, four...

  • One Hour Later

  • OK, that was tiring. I've acted as a human metronome for the last hour.

  • Oh, hello, how my son going?

  • Oh, hello, Mrs. Yang!

  • Your son... absolutely sucks!

  • I know. I keep telling him to practice, but he doesn't.

  • That's OK! In 10 years' time, I'll tell him to stop practicing and become doctor.

  • One, two, three

  • Too quick!

  • You dumb f—

Hi, Mr. Chin.
