    Why We Teach Music
    Not because we expect our students to major in music,
    Not because we expect them to play or sing all their life,
    Not so they can relax, 
    Not so they can have fun.
    But so they will be human,
    So they will recognize beauty,
    So they will be sensitive,
    So they will be closer to an infinite beyond this world,
    So they will have something to cling to,
    So they 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?
