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
Not so you can relax
Not so you can have fun

BUT --- so you will be human
              so you will recognize beauty
              so you will be sensitive
              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.

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

THAT IS WHY WE TEACH MUSIC!
