Thought Provoking Discussions About Music - Performances and
Demonstrations from World Renown Musicians, Thinkers and Technology Experts
throughout these videos is how music benefits humanity. It may sound
like an exaggeration but sad to say - in many ways in our American
Culture, we have lost our thread in comprehending the importance of
music. This is evidenced by the de-emphasis and demise of music
education in our schools and education systems. Though music may seem
to be thriving commercially in the popular realm, support and emphasis in our culture, for a musical view
and understanding of the
world is non-existent.

remedy is to
reeducate ourselves and our policy makers. The paradigm has to
shift form "Every Child Left Behind" to "Every Mind Needs Music."
