It seems like classical music is finally getting the support it deserves in at least small area of LA, USA. This was the topic of a recent 60 minutes interview with Gustavo Dudamel, the youngest conductor ever for the Philharmonic Orchestra and the youngest major conductor in the world.
Just think for a moment:
How many of us came from a band or orchestra program when we were young?
My bet is that most of us have been a part of such a program in the past! This is where we get our inspiration and motivation to do it now …isn’t it? and all because we had a great experience with music at a young age.
I would love to get your feedback, viewpoints and stories on this one, so please fill in the comment box below.
As you probably gather, I believe that all children should have access to a quality band or orchestra program as part of their school curriculum. Music helps so many children in schools and with a successful band orchestra program such as this one, you can reach many children at once.
