Why I Teach Music

An anonymous poem that says it well....

This is why I teach music:

 Not because I expect you to major in music 

Not because I expect you to sing or play 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, compassion, gentleness, good - in short, more life.


Of what value will it be to make a 

prosperous living unless you know how to live?
