Great breakdown Clyde. If you're trying to further improve your sites speed and performance you'll want to install a cache plugin. Every single time your WordPress website loads a page it's doing a lot of database fetching/calculating. With a cache plugin, it does this once and then sends the final results to everyone so your site will load a lot quicker :) Most can do other things like minimize files (remove the spaces in them), etc.

W3 Total Cache is a good one: https://wordpress.org/plugins/w3-total-cache/

We've been designing themes for musicians for 3 years now and you're right, the WordPress community is pretty amazing.

That's the big one they mention and the plugin I usually see if the managed host is handling caching that way.
