Sorry I haven’t had a chance to get back here–testing season will do that!
If their answer is “I just love to sing,” then my response would be, “well, then, I’d like to help you be the best singer you can be. What we do in class is all designed to help you be a better singer.” I don’t have an answer for the easy A. There are inevitably some of those kids in every class.
I find your situation so interesting, because I have somewhat of an opposite problem this year. We have a very strong community children’s chorus program and a good children’s theater program in our area. I have a number of students who participate in these, think that they are “stars,” and are sure that they know it all–or at least more than I do!
