Music Education
During the Gulf War, the few opportunities I had for relaxation I always
listened to music, and it brought me great peace of mind. I have shared my
love of music with people throughout this world, while listening to the
drums and special instruments of the Far East, Middle East, Africa, the
Caribbean, and the Far North, and all of this started with the music
appreciation course that I was taught in a third-grade elementary class in
Princeton, New Jersey. What a tragedy it would be if we lived in a world
where music was not taught to children.
