"All sounds are important, but not all sounds need to receive the same degree of emphasis: alllettersareimportantbutnotalllettersneedtoreceivethesamedegreeofemphasis." --Barbara English Maris
"Every technical problem actually is a musical problem. Technique and musicianship are so closely related that they really cannot be separated. At the same time you build your musical skills, you also strengthen technical skills that will enable you to create the musical effects you seek. Whenever you work on technical material, be aware of the expressive sounds you create. Play music, not just notes. In solving technical problems, you will resolve musical problems." --Barbara English Maris
