As a Music Teacher, I found these words touching. I typed them up for my classroom and thought other Music teachers may appreciate this too...
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 Develops Insight and
VII. Music is all these things, but most of all,
Music is Art.
That is why we 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 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,
