Our community does a good job of providing opportunities to listen to great choral and instrumental music including providing free opportunities to students. Let’s do more in the area of promoting early childhood music experiences and finding affordable ways of providing early musical education for all children. It is an enrichment that plays big dividends. Hans Christian Anderson said it well, “Where words fail, music speaks.”
As far as legitimate reasons for getting kids involved in music go, Ms. Guenseth steps foot onto somewhat shaky ground. But I can’t argue with this conclusion.
