The difference between October and December is dramatic. Students take off for strange otherworldy places with their worldy parents and often leave their instruments behind. Whereas, the few that remain are stuffing themselves with libations instead of devoting time to their studies. Understandable to an extent. An interesting analogy by Kenny Werner in his book Effortless Mastery comes to mind. When addressing the "serious" student, he mentions that if you tie a plastic bag over his head then ask him how important music REALLY is you are likely to get a different answer. Now, if you are saying that I am comparing suffocation to family functions, you are a serious sicko. I mean...REALLY. Heh Heh.
