The entry you are changing the wording of is:
|Title||Mr. Holland's Opus|
|Original entry||Mr. Holland has to ask for Rowena's name (as if he had never seen her before) during her audition for the Gershwin review. A couple of scenes later in the coffee shop, she reveals to him how much she enjoyed his class and his sense of humor. Surely he would have remembered having her in class for a year - especially someone as interesting and talented musically as her? [Rowena might never have spoken up in class. Mr. Holland has taught for many years at this point and he may not necessarily remember all of his students. ]|
