Fill the Cup of Silence
"You know music education is something very dear to my heart. When I was in high school I had music teacher, a wonderful man named Virgil Sperling who taught me a lot more than scales and keys and how to hold a steady note on the saxophone. He taught me about patience and practice, hard work and dedication and teamwork. The music I made on that first tenor saxophone of mine wasn't always beautiful to the ear--my mother can certainly testify to that. But as I learned and improved, I came to understand how important a musical instrument can be as an outlet for creativity, for ideas and emotions that only music can express." (William Clinton)

More and more schools have been forced to cut back on music and other art departments, some to the point of extinction; this is not the answer, rather creating a bigger problem.
