This Is Why I Teach Music
Not because I expect you to major in music,
not because I expect you to play or sing all your life,
not so you can relax,
not so you can have fun.
So you will be human.
So you will recognize beauty.
So you will be closer to an infinite beyond this world.
So you will have something to cling to.
So you will have more love,
In short, more life.
Of what value will it be to make a prosperous living
unless you know how to live?
