Below is a video of Dr. Tim Lautzenheiser’s keynote address to the Houston Arts Partners Conference attendees in 2012. Among the points from his address is that music is not for a talented few. Every child has the propensity to make music. Music education during the early years builds the brain up to be musical. The years before age 10 is when this should happen. After that, a person can still be musical, but he or she will have to work a lot harder at it. Dr. Tim also points out that everyone wins when arts education is strong. Academic achievement goes up, musicality goes up, and lifetime achievement goes up for those who receive a rich arts education. Dr. Tim says it all brilliantly, and backs up his message with research. Listen to Dr. Tim, and share the message.
