The Power of Music

Music gives a soul to the universe,
wings to the mind, flight to the imagination,
a charm to sadness, gaiety and life to everything.
It is the essence of order, and leads to all that is good,
just and beautiful, of which it is the invisible,
but nevertheless, dazzling, passionate, and eternal form.
- Plato

Music... can name the unnamable and communicate the unknowable.
-Leonard Bernstein

Often a single experience will open the young soul to music for a lifetime. This experience cannot be left to chance, it is the duty of the school to provide it.
- Zoltan Kodaly

We are the music makers,
And we are the dreamers of dreams.
Yet we are the movers and shakers,
Of the world forever, it seems.
- Arthur O'Shaughnessy
