Motivating Quotes and Advice

Get encouragement on your musical journey drawn from Joanne’s conservatory training in piano and music theory and 30 plus years as a teacher.
Talent “As a young teacher I would become excited whenever I started teaching bright quick learners.  I would agree with the happy parents that their child was unusually talented and progressing beyond his peers.  Then to my disappointment the student would become bored and suddenly quit his lessons.  I noticed other “slower” students continuing on – faithfully improving and reaching a proficiency that would last for a lifetime.  I learned that talent is a simple equation: hours of effort = level of talent.” Joanne Jolee
“Toil to make yourself remarkable by some talent or other. ” Seneca 5 BC-65 AD

“We just love the fabulous accompaniments you’ve put to each tune.”
