Benefits of Music

These quotes were found on the back of an Honor Band recital program (Thanks Sanya):

-Music has always played a major role in society. It exalts the human spirit and enhances the quality of life.

LOVE this next one!

-Music helps students to develop and mature. Musical potential is one of the basic abilities that exists in every human being.

Music education with little humans :) increases that potential!

-Music uses one of the most powerful and complex symbol systems in existence, which can be used for the development of critical thinking skills in all students.

I also found this interesting jpeg from here, referring to a study published on nature.com about how science has proven music is good for us. Good stuff!

And then I found this cute image :) :
"In addition to being one of the greatest physicists of the 20th century, Albert Einstein was also an avid violinist."

As a child, I had a poster of Albert Einstein up in my room that said, "Imagination is more important than knowledge". I loved it :)
