"The notes I handle no better than many pianists.  But the pauses between the notes - ah, that is where the art resides."  Artur Schnabel

"Good teaching comes not from behind the desk, but behind the heart."  Elizabeth Andrew

"Simplicity is the final achievement.  After one has played a vast quantity of notes and more notes, it is simplicity that emerges as the crowning reward of art."  Frederick Chopin

Remember the following for anything you do in your life - an amateur practices the piano until he doesn't make a mistake, a professional practices the piano until he can't make a mistake.  Paul Hennessy
