Okay so to anyone who teaches at the students house. What are your thoughts on using the bathroom during the lesson. I did it for the first time the other day and I felt weird. Also I didn't realize how uncomfortable it would make me.

I prefer not to use it. Sometimes I will use it in between kids (I usually teach multiple siblings in that situation).

I've never done it smack in the middle of a lesson, but I still get so nervous and uncomfortable. Idk maybe that's just me. Oh well...

My teacher routinely would ask to use our bathroom as soon as she got to my house because she had come directly from another student's home. The fact that we are both female no doubt made it more comfortable for her to ask. From my point of view, it was always a good incentive to keep the toilet clean.☺️

One time, I had to poo so bad but was too embarrassed to ask my teacher to use her bathroom.  So I waited and after the lesson, I drove home real quick only to poo myself a couple of turns before my home. It was like warm pudding!  ;D  LOL

You should have seen just how much poo penetration there was.  It was sort of difficult driving with my butt off the seat because I didn't want it to penetrate into the upholstery.  And then witness the waddle as I walked to the door, then up the stairs, and then striped to see the mess I made.  sh*t, that was nasty.

All I can say is... good luck controlling a concert grand if you can't even control your own bowels...

A high level of self-control is indeed required to play the piano well.

What's more, if one is capable of pooping one's pants WHILE driving, what is to stop that same person from having a similar accident while ON the concert stage itself?

After all:

 driving=sitting in public

 performing music on the piano=sitting in public

Certain things that are done while sitting in PRIVATE may not go over so well in a more public setting!

Honestly, I feel only pity for you at this point.  ;) I had no wish to insult you, I was merely pointing out that a good deal of physical, bodily control is required to operate the pianoforte with any level of skill whatsoever. Many would argue that it takes even greater bodily control to be a great pianist than it takes to NOT crap yourself while driving.

But honestly, you did what you had to do, and I respect you for that. You had to go, so you went.  I just hope your upholstery wasn't damaged in any way.

I often excuse myself for 30 seconds during my extremely boring students. But the difference is that I teach at an institute.

As for pooping, I think everyone has had an accident once or twice. I don't see why your ass would affect your fingers?

Has your toilet tissue ever experienced so much fatigue stress that it tears apart during in the action of wiping?  When it gives way, you'll end up with sh*t on your hands.  And if your nails aren't trimmed, sh*t can get stuck underneath the nails so when you play, the sh*t migrates to the keys.  Then when the next person plays on that piano, the sh*t will transfer to their fingers.  And when they turn the page, the sh*t will transfer onto the music.  And when you close the book, the sh*t will transfer onto the facing page.  In summary, weak toilet tissue causes brown spots not only between the crack and on the fingers, but also on the piano and sheetmusic.

My teacher is in another town, a long drive away.

A couple blocks short of his house there is a shopping center with a Staples.  I stop there and use the bathroom to ensure I won't have to use his.  I think it is good manners to plan ahead and avoid having to deal with this.  If I were teaching I would do the same. 

Apologies for getting serious again; we now return control of the thread to the seamstresses and comedians.

Just go if you have to. Everyone pees. Everyone poops. It's a NORMAL HUMAN THING.

If you gotta go, then you gotta go. Just don't come out, seedy moustache and all, with a bag of excrement in your hands, trousers down, and be like, where does this sh*t go? After which, you proceed to wipe your anus hole with the student's piano cloth, and put some deodorant on your pubes, before buckling up your trousers and, and without washing your hands, play an arpeggio. subsequently, you say, 'so where shall we begin?', in which case your student is also female. And you be's like, 'nigz, you didn't see nothing yet'.

False.

Once upon a time...
20 minutes for lunch, the only possible time during the day.
A teacher's lunchroom with someone's flimsy plywood creation surrounding a lone toilet... (Point being there are only a few millimeters of pressed wood between you and several teacher's eating lunch.  Let's save money and build the bathroom ourselves!  Right next to the eating table. Just don't bump the wall too hard or it might fall over.)
Only one option if you want to go at all during day...
You must become a ninja.

It should be ok to use a student's bathroom if you teach at a student's house, and it should be ok to use your teacher's bathroom if you are a student taking lessons at the studio.  Why should it not be ok?  The first time I read of bathroom considerations, I was astonished.

NPR had a segment on the radio this morning.

630 million people in India have no access to a bathroom.  They walk into a field and do their business.  Women try to wait for hours of darkness.  It's unsanitary, and they're frequently crime victims in the process.
