There once was a little boy who spent his childhood in a very musical home – his father was a professional musician, and the child learned how to play keyboard and lute at a young age. His creativity blossomed, and soon he was applying his creativity in mathematics, philosophy, science and invention. He would go on to change the world…. what was the little boy’s name? Galileo Galilei. Not everyone is Galileo, but music can add inspiration and beauty to every life.
Even in the earliest civilizations, as far back as 7,000 years ago, there were harps, lyres, reed pipes and drums. We will be studying the history and evolution of music to compliment our other studies. Sean and I will also be teaching the children to play the guitar this year.
“Music and rhythm find their way into the secret places of the soul” Plato
