<><> [students] that have absolutely no prayer in making it as a
performer, but they still go for it. There's something to be said for
it, though.

Clearly the quote above refers to students who intend to be performers,
such as performance majors in college. But I want to remind teachers
everywhere that performance is not the only reasonable goal of learning
to play music. And while most people want to play well in order to
enjoy the experience, music is not necessarily a quest for excellence
either.

Cheers,
Bill <who is a worn out record on this topic>
