"Music students have before them the opportunity to be "better than the average bear", as a colleague of mine was fond of saying. Being part of a performing music ensemble helps them grow into magnificent people willing to see a task through to its completion, to sacrifice their indivduality for the benefit of a group, and to seek out beauty, depth, and quality in their world. The rewards of long-term involvement with music are fantastic. Finding ways to get students past that initial difficult skill-building phase to the realm where they can be creative and expressive is where the true artistry of a music educator comes in.  Music education needs to be more than just "fun and games". It has the ability to significantly enrich the lives of those committed to its study. Music education also needs to be more than just "prepare for the next public performance". Developing the skills necessary to perform well is only one facet of what it means to be a well-rounded musician. Performance only can only carry the student so far, and it certainly does not make the vast majority of students life-long participants in the art form."  quote from Thomas J. West Music blog
