LOBBYING FOR MUSIC
“If there is too much focus on non-creative subjects in our schools, I believe that our educational programs across the nation would suffer,” said McCutchon, the current secretary of UD’s NAfME chapter. “Music not only teaches students how to understand and play music, but also key skills such as teamwork, time management, forward planning, and organization. Music in itself is such a powerful tool that anyone can connect to no matter how small that connection may be.”

The legendary Quincy Jones, who was recently inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, tells Terry Gross about his friendship with the late Ray Charles, who he met when they were both still just teenagers:

“It’s one of the treasured, cherished friendships I really have because as kids, we’d talk about everything. He’d show me how to write music in Braille, Dizzy Gillespie songs like “Emanon” and “Bebop” etc. and we used to dream about the future. Like ‘wouldn’t it be great to work with a symphony orchestra, one day we’re going to do that. One day we’ll have three girlfriends each. One day we’re going to do movies together. We’re going to do all that stuff.’ And we did it. That’s what’s amazing. We did “the Heat of the Night together”, “We are the World”, all of those things, everything, the girls, so it’s amazing to dream and have your dreams executed like that.”

The Purpose of Education

AMEN BROTHER

thelearningbrain:

The purpose of education should be to teach children how to think and discover things for themselves, not what to think or directly tell them outcomes.
