“I believe that within every child is a musician, …sleeping…waiting to be awakened, …to be guided and trained to appreciate all styles of music. All children or all ages should have the opportunity to successfully explore, learn, develop performance skills and perform with others in our world of music. Once set on the musical path, they will be a life-long learner, seeking the knowledge and power that music gives to the world.”
