all that jazz

My piano teacher is getting into jazz. Her background is classical
but she has been ordering lots of jazz instructional books lately.

Needless to say, I couldn't improvise very much.

In other news, I've been reading CollegeConfidential lately. I will
probably go into more detail on this at some future time, but I
wouldn't want to be a student trying to get into a competitive college
now, nor would I want to be a parent of such a student. Way too
