I. Music is a science
II. Music is Mathematical
III. Music is a Foreign Language
IV. Music is History
V. Music is Physical Education
VI. Music is all things, but most of all, music is Art.
That is why I teach music:
Not because we expect you to major in music
Not because we expect you to play or sing all your life...
But so you will be human
So you will recognize the beauty
So you will be closer to an infinite beyond this world
So you will have something to cling to
So you will have more love, more compassion,
More gentleness, more good---
In short, more life.
*Studies have shown that students who participate in school music programs
consistently score higher on standardized tests. In addition to this
benefit, students learn to work together cooperatively, they learn self
discipline from daily practice and they enjoy an increase in self-esteem from
successfully participating in performance groups.
