Ted spent five years of his life teaching the recorder in New York City schools. (1:20)

MUSIC HERE IN NEW YORK CITY. I TAUGHT THE RECORDER.

YOU GUYS FAMILIAR WITH SATAN'S LITTLE FLUTE.

- [LAUGHTER] - YEAH.

IF THERE'S MUSIC IN HELL I ASSURE YOU,

IT IS PLAYED ON A RECORDER.

IT WAS LIKE THE MOVIE GROUNDHOG'S DAY

EXCEPT INSTEAD OF WAKING UP TO "I GOT YOU BABE" EVERY DAY

IT WAS "HOT CROSS BUNS."IT'S SIX TIMES A DAY.

♪ TU-TU-TU

♪ TU-TU-TU

FIVE YEARS OF MY LIFE...

♪ TU-TU-TU-TU, TU-TU-TU-TU ♪

♪ TU-TU-TU

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]

DRIVE ME INSANE. THAT SONG STILL HAUNTS ME.

AND RECORDER'S LIKE THE ONLY SUBJECT WHERE KIDS

HAVE THEIR PARENTS BLESSING NOT TO DO THEIR HOMEWORK.

BECAUSE I WOULD BE LIKE, "DID YOU EVEN PRACTICE AT ALL

SINCE LAST WEEK?" "NO, I HAVE A NOTE FROM MY PARENTS.

- WE ALL DO." "ALL RIGHT." - [LAUGHTER]

BUT I'VE ALWAYS BEEN MUSICAL,

YOU KNOW, PLAYED IN A JAZZ BAND WHEN I WAS IN JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL.

AND BY JAZZ I MEAN WE WORE SUNGLASSES WHILE WE PLAYED.

[LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE]
