    "Music study teaches lessons about the nature of complexity; about the relationships of parts to wholes; about balance, proportion, interweaving elements, structure, and design. Patience with difficulty and willingness to work in the short term toward long-term goals are essential. The rehearsal/performance sequence teaches how many hours of mental and physical labor must be dedicated to produce a few minutes of excellence." (Samuel Hope)
