Joan Cartwright is a phoenix! Always reborn from the ashes never stopped by old frozen paradigms. Teacher you have always been because you know. Happy are those students that will benefit from the treasure you are. May they be sophisticated enough to dig it. Bravo! -- Babacar M'Bow, Broward Library, Florida
I heard you are back in Florida. Hope all is well, and glad to hear that you're teaching music. I hope your students realize how fortunate they are to have a teacher like you.
I'm still working with the Florida Youth Orchestra, you can log on to find out more. Peace, love, and always flowers, Deb

HOW WONDERFUL! Joan, you taught me one of the biggest lessons when we were in Atlanta. It was this:
You played a beautiful piece on your piano and said absolutely nothing as you just flowed with the beautiful sounds. We were very impressed with the music and made it a point to share with you how beautiful it was - While you were playing. Yet it was these words that made a lasting impact (Paraphrasing):
I just played my life for you, and you talked through it. The lesson learned was this, no matter how impressed you may be with one's work, and how many accolades you give, the most impressive to the one sharing is your undivided attention and your ability to listen.
You are a wonderful teacher, Joan, and may Almighty God bless you with much success! Thank you for imparting your God given wisdom. Have a great day! -- Sister Kendra
Im so happy for you, good luck on your adventure and have fun! -- Michael J. Serrano
Hi Joan, Congrats and best wishes for a successful new career. Ginny
