Helen Ware

“Mrs. Helen Ware, writing for the Musician, has told how in the musical world the mother may still cultivate her art.  Indeed she is till able to see the experiences of motherhood that which contributes an indispensable quality to her musical expression.  Speaking as both mother and musical artist she says:

‘Among the greatest women artists supreme alone are they whose lives have been broadened through the ennobling influences which come with Motherhood.  It must be admitted that Motherhood certainly does not lighten the burdens of a musical career.  But on closer study we learn that the woman artist’s new problems, which follow in the wake of new responsibilities, are of a nature which can be solved through economic mediums.’ ”
