Mozart as the model of diligence and responsibility —Mozart as educational tool:

"Do you have a talent for music? If so, you should consider pursuing this ability. (…) The composers in the Composer Highlights Series were gifted musicians who worked diligently to develop their talents. Some of them were artists as well as musicians. All of them were sensitive human beings who appreciated beauty in its many forms. They encountered numerous difficulties in their lives but they persevered, leaving a lasting heritage for millions to enjoy. Knowing them personally adds a new dimension to their music." (p. 32)
