  •  Don't diss that NYT article about music. (8+ / 0-)

    So what if it talks about Rice Greenspan and hedge funders.  Big Dog also was an All State sax player, and I could go on and on about the benefits of playing, as can hundreds of diarists here, including regular rec listed diarists.

    So if you're going to diss it, I say to you:

    Thhhbbbbbttt!

    •  You beat me to it! (4+ / 0-)

      38 years of public school teaching music to young-un's!  It can change their lives in untold ways.  I usually feel like I'm preaching to the choir when I extol the virtues of music education which is sad.  Those that don't value it admire that I can do something they can't do but they don't always see the value in allowing others the opportunity to experience it.

      •  I think music is important in lives.... (0+ / 0-)

        my spouse plays music for himself, almost every day.  Our son and daughter, both young adults, play.  And we all go to concerts and shows.

        •  That's the way it is at my house. (0+ / 0-)

          Music is our refuge from the stress of daily life.
