How Music Survives Despite Music Education Funding Challenges

Quote of the day:
“It is amazing what can be accomplished when nobody cares about who gets the credit”

I’ve seen this quote that has been attributed to 18th century politician, judge, and author, Robert Yates. It is a reminder of the power of selflessness. It is in my estimation the reason that music survives and thrives in times that are very challenging for artists – There are enough wonderfully talented musicians and music teachers who care more about mentoring the next generation of musicians than receiving accolades or the spotlight.

More about this topic in a previous post – I wrote about this topic with regard to a wonderful collaborative recording between guitarists John Pizzarelli and Davy Mooney.
