Persistence pays off. The story of a late bloomer.

You never when when a student is finally going to flourish. And persistence is key whether you are the student, teacher, or just aspiring to reach your life targets.

As an example, NPR recently did a story on boogie-woogie piano player, Pinetop Perkins, who at 95 years of age was nominated for a Grammy.

“The great irony of Pinetop’s career is that he didn’t blossom as a headliner until his eighth decade – a phenomenon that resulted in the release of 15 solo records in 15 years, beginning in 1992.”
