Music Teacher

It all started with a little dog named Pizza.

Between tours I would find myself at the Colbert County Animal Shelter, walking a few dogs each day. A friend of mine once said: “You know, you can only go into a barber shop so many times before you end up with a haircut.”  I was happy to help many dogs as often as I could.

I don’t need a dog of my own. It is better that I can help many dogs.

Walking shelter dogs not only gets them out of their cages so that they may find relief somewhere other than where they sleep…it also takes a little bit of pressure of the shelter employees, with one less cage to clean up. It increases the chances of a dog being adopted because he or she may learn to do better on a leash. Plus it’s just a ton of fun.

I knew I could never have a dog of my own because I was always on the road. Then one day it happened. “Do they ever let you have sleepovers?”

She was a stressed out blue heeler mix, afraid of everything from doors to cars. We would have to cross the road every time there was a garbage can out on the street.

What could have possibly happened to you?

So we did it. We had a “sleepover” and less than two weeks later, I was filling out adoption papers.

Over time, something else began to happen. I realized that I liked being at home. I liked spending time with her, and watching her improve each day. I taught her to raise her hand when I asked “Who’s the best dog ever?”. She learned to place her tiny paw on my knee when I said “Who’s your best bud?” (then, of course, we had to make sure she that she really meant it, and “shake on it”).

She was so smart. She learned “May I have this dance?”, “Lay one on me!” and “What does a dire wolf do?” within days.

What am I going to do now?

I am a firm believer that sometimes we don’t know how to truly live until we can see it in our minds. I started to imagine myself at 65. What would I be doing? Surely I wasn’t still on the road, slugging it out night after night and trying to track down lost luggage.

I’m a little old piano teacher…

It was still music. It was still helping people. Right out of high school, I was in university with plans to be some kind of teacher, maybe an English teacher, history…it wouldn’t have even really mattered. Everyone has that one teacher; the one who changes everything. Maybe you’re thinking about him or her right now. I thought maybe I could be that to someone. This combined an old goal with a new chapter.

So here it is. Another chapter…

Patreon

Billy Pettinger Patreon Page

Hello. I’m adopting a new subscription based system for releasing new material as I record it through Patreon.com/BillyPettinger.

So far I’ve posted two new songs as well as some songwriting and recording workshops and videos. Expect much more to come.

After I roll out the new material one song at a time, I’ll be asking for my Patreon subscribers’ votes to help determine which songs will have drums, etc. added (expect a cool cameo or two!) and be mixed and mastered for inclusion on the upcoming vinyl and CD release. Yes. Finally.

Thank you for your support. Some shirts up on the webstore if you need some new summer fashions.
