Sad State of Music Education System

| July 14, 2008 | Reply

Recently, we received an email from a gentleman looking for music lessons:

“So, I am an English teacher in the Bronx and I got hired to teach music next year. Although I am a music lover, I have never played an instrument and definitely not a musician. I need to take piano and music theory lessons this summer so I can be ahead of my beginning students next school year. Can you help?”

As music budgets keep getting cut further and further, I wonder if the kids of the future will have an understanding of the joys music adds to life.
