"I've considered always that teaching is a far more important aspect of my life than performing...I've always said that after a standing ovation, people sit down. Teaching may affect generations."
- Janos Starker
What an amazing quote about the imperative that is music education. It simply is not an option to eliminate it from any student's educational experience in this country. Nothing short of future generations are at stake. May we honor the late, great Mr. Starker, whom we lost this week, by continuing to fight the good fight when it comes to music education.
May he rest in peace.
