Over recent years, Joan has been invited to speak for various music organizations. She is an excellent motivational speaker, inspiring both new teachers and experienced teachers with new ideas which they can incorporate into their teaching studios. She also has introduced various organizations to the Music Educators Association's Theory program. One recent lecture she gave was on composer Gian Carlo Menotti. She had the privilege of interviewing him in the mid 1980's and wrote an article about him in her magazine, On Key The Magazine For Young Pianists. The audio to that interview will be available soon. It is quite interesting!
