Music is 'Electrical Soil'

Here are a few favorite music advocacy quotes and my latest poster. Enjoy : )

“When faced with a problem to solve, students in music and the arts produce more possible solutions, and their solutions are more creative, according to a nationwide study.”           
                             - N. M. Weinberger, Arts Education Enhances ‘Real Life’ Personal Skills,  
   MuSICA Research Notes, Spring 2000.

“…The ability to be creative is native to the arts and is one of the primary processes learned through arts education...  arts promote work habits that cultivate curiosity, imagination, creativity, and evaluation skills. Students who possess these skills are better able to tolerate ambiguity, explore new realms of possibility, express their own thoughts and feelings and understand the perspectives of others… Students’ capacity to create and express themselves through the arts is one of the central qualities that make
them human, as well as a basis for success in the 21st century.
