I have come to the definite conclusion that musical ability is not an inborn talent but an ability which can be developed.
Knowledge is not skill. Knowledge plus ten thousand times is skill.
Perhaps it is music that will save the world.
Anything you think of doing, however insignificant, should be done immediately. Spur yourself on and carry it through without becoming discouraged. If this becomes an ingrained habit, things you thought were impossible will become possible, and closed doors will open, as you will discover in many ways.
Music exists for the purpose of growing an admirable heart.
What is man's ultimate direction in life? It is to look for love, truth, virtue, and beauty.
An unlimited amount of ability can develop when parent and child are having fun together.
If children hear fine music from the day of their birth and learn to play it, they develop sensitivity, discipline and endurance. They get a beautiful heart.
Musical ability is not an inborn talent but an ability which can be developed. Any child who is properly trained can develop musical ability just as all children develop the ability to speak their mother tongue. The potential of every child is unlimited.
Children learn to smile from their parents.
