And Not Just In America....

http://www.thestar.com.my/News/Nation/2013/12/06/Rahman-calls-for-more-music-schools.aspxIn relation to my last post, more young learners are getting a shot at a valuable and enriching education. A.R. Rahman, a prominent Indian composer, is beginning to call for better music education and music schools all throughout India for young learners. Every child, no matter what country or socioeconomic status, deserves a good education. It warms my heart this holiday season to see so many people who want to help others!

Supporting Our Young Learners

I was ecstatic to open my Feedly this morning and see this article saying NAfME is supporting an Early Childhood Learning Bill. In a world where our youngest learners are being trampled over to make way for other things this teacher finds less essential, it is great to see a group standing up for those who cannot stand up for themselves yet. I read on to get even more excited when I saw that Iowa Senator Tom Harkin (my home state), is a primary supporter of this bill.
