I am proud to be an official Edmodo Ambassador.

In a speech to the incoming freshman at the Boston Conservatory of Music, Music Department Head Dr. Karl Paulnack gave an analogy that echoes My feelings on the importance of music education: “If we were a medical school, and you were here as a med student practicing appendectomies, you’d take your work very seriously because you would imagine that some night at two AM someone is going to waltz into your emergency room and you’re going to have to save their life. Well, my friends, someday at 8 PM someone is going to walk into your concert hall and bring you a mind that is confused, a heart that is overwhelmed, a soul that is weary. Whether they go out whole again will depend partly on how well you do your craft” (Paulnack, Why Music Matters).
