Interesting... here's JFK's thoughts about the arts: "As a great democratic society, we have a special responsibility to the arts. For art is the great democrat, calling forth creative genius from every sector of society, disregarding race or religion or wealth or color. What freedom alone can bring is the liberation of the human mind and a spirit which finds its greatest flowering in the free society. I see of little more importance to the future of our country and our civilization than the full recognition of the place of the artist." - John F. Kennedy

"The art of music is so deep and profound that to approach it very seriously only is not enough. One must approach music with a serious rigor, and, at the same time, with a great, affectionate joy." ~Nadia Boulanger

Introduction
Hi, my name is Joy, and I’m a pianist and teacher in Ohio.  I love teaching piano, which I have been doing since 2005.  Teaching piano is one of the most rewarding things I have ever done, and I plan to continue doing it for the rest of my life.  Join me at the Color In My Piano blog as I share about my journey of learning and growing as a teacher.
