"I started taking piano lessons when I was a Colonel in the Army and I have continued after I retired from active duty. The piano is a wonderful instrument and is a challenge to learn how to play. I look forward to practice. It is very satisfying to see improvement and to be able to play more challenging and beautiful music. I feel it is never too late to learn something new and playing the piano at any level is rewarding."

"The things I learned from my experience in music in school are
discipline, perseverance, dependability, composure, courage, and pride in results,
not a bad preparation for the workforce!"
