I believe that a great part of our responsibility as educators is to explain what we teach, impart why it is important, promote the benefits of it, and show how it is rewarding to every stakeholder: students, parents, administrators, teachers of other disciplines, and community members. In short, I think no words describe this better than those of the remarkable educator Dr. Leo Buscaglia when he said, “What we do is a marvelous feast. We need to prepare the food with great relish and care, sample it frequently, dance around the table at mealtime, and invite everyone to join the celebration.” We each need to take every opportunity to do this as intensely as we can, for each moment we get to make music with young people is indeed a “feast” of joy and wonder.
