Why Do We Teach Music?

Posted by on Jul 3, 2009 in Articles for Students | No Comments

Not because we expect you to major in music,

Not because we expect you to play or sing all your life,

Not so you can relax,

Not so you can have fun,

Teach Music

But – so you will be human,

So you will recognize beauty.

So you will be sensitive,

So you will have something to cling to,

So you will have more love,

More compassion,

More gentleness,

More good –

In short, more life.

Of what value will it be to make a prosperous living unless you know how to live?

This is why we teach music.
