Not in my book, anyway. As long as you took it the way you did - that's great. However, for those that dislike the approch of the "insulting" style of teacher to the point of emotional disturbance - leave!

-------------------------------

I agree with Mark. Not everyone is able to shrug it off. My daughter's clarinet teacher was a fabulous player but at the time I knew her, she had little confidence in her own ability. This was 20 years after she had experience such "putdown" type of teacher in her college career. She was principal clarinet in the community band to which I belonged at the time. We had a new player come in who had secured a position as a teacher of clarinet at a nearby college. She ceded her position to him without even considering that she might be the better person to be the principal. There was only one thing the new fellow could do better than she did. He could play marginally faster. On the other hand, he was very poor at following the conductor's tempo. He couldn't keep a steady tempo if his life depended on it. If one of the section members got lost, was a little out of tune, or squeaked or whatever, he immediately lost his concentration and couldn't keep his place in the music. His playing was flashy and showy but he did not have what it took to be a section leader (IMHO).
