Found: Cartoon Defense of Music & Dance Education

Why teach the arts? I wish this question didn’t need to be asked and answered so often. But since our culture does seem to require a defense of teaching music and dance…it’s nice to have little inspirational videos like this one that make the case for us.

“One doesn’t make the end of the composition, the point of the composition.”

Children can benefit from reaching for a goal, sure, but they also need time to enjoy the present–the sound of piano keys playing or the thrill of leaping through the air. The arts are performed now. Right now.

Here’s to Enjoying the Now!  ~Linda
