Words of Wisdom for Wednesday: Albert Einstein

“It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge.”

– Albert Einstein

Several music programs teach musical concepts in a very formal

and rote manner. I believe that for young children, the emphasis

should always be on the joy of singing, dancing, and making music with

friends; the joy of listening to beautiful, soothing ot inspiring sounds; and 

the joy of creative self-expression. There’s plenty of time for formal

terminology and technique later – kids just want to have fun!

What do you think?
