Music is the “heart” of a healthy and well-educated child

You’ve heard me say it before, “math and science are training for the brain, music and art are training for the heart, neither of which we can live without.”  It’s not my quote and I really don’t even remember where it came from, probably a book I had to read in college for my “Philosophy of Education” paper that was so important as a budding young music teacher.  Now after so many years of helping to grow students into tuneful, beatful and artful individuals, I truly understand these words and I am able to see it in these wonderful children I teach everyday.  I am extremely grateful for the opportunity to teach music, something I absolutely believe whole-heartedly in and something I passionately love.
