Music as a base

Learning is “constructed”, and construction requires a solid foundation. Music helps create this foundation.

“The theory of relativity occurred to me by intuition, and music is the driving force behind this intuition. My parents had me study the violin from the time I was six. My new discovery is the result of musical perception.” Albert Einstein

If it was important enough for Einstein than it is something we all should bring the power that music has in learning back into our schools in some way. As a parent, if you can play an instrument and have some time, ask your school how you can get involved as a volunteer – they would love to have you.
