OBJECTIVE: TO HELP CHILDREN GAIN AN APPRECIATION OF FINE MUSIC AND LEARN TO EXPRESS THEMSELVES MUSICALLY
Music is the universal language. It has been referred to as the 'quickening art' as it stirs our emotions and carries messages to a place deep within our hearts that words alone cannot reach. Throughout history, music has been used as a great healer. It's only in our modern day that it has become purely a means of entertainment. I hope you enjoy exploring the power music can have in your home and in your life as you read, watch, and listen to this month's selections.
"Harmony has the power to draw Heaven downwards to the earth. It inspires men to love the good, and to do their duty. If one should desire to know whether a kingdom is well governed, if its morals are good or bad, the quality of its music shall furnish forth the answers."
