It's so nice to hear this kind of information about music presented in a fun and entertaining atmosphere without it being packaged and turned into a 'save the music' battle cry.

Music educators might learn a lesson from other disciplines (like golf for example), who have done a brilliant job of marketing outside of academia and across all gender and age groups including professional adults and seniors. Maybe then our profession would thrive both inside and outside of academia, and we would not be held captive by budget cuts or the whim of indifferent school boards.

A guy can dream can't he?
