Patty Smith:

I enjoyed your two posts of the 18th very much with lots of chuckles. Your are
quite right, with kids the motivation scheme takes them where they will but
underneath is the guiding force of the parents. Re the "Yeah, yeah, Baby"Syndrome:
I used to have letter exchanges with Will Moyle, a Rochesterian Musicologist and
Host of a PBS Jazz show. When I complained about the direction Pop music was taking,
he would chastize me by pointing out,"If it has form, its music". Patty,you must be a darn
good teacher. Your insights are thoughtful and never lose the enjoyment, the fun and
humor of it all. Best wishes to you and the twin potential clarinettists! May the
Force be with you.
