|Q:||What would your life be without music?|
|A:||My life without music is so very hard to imagine. One thing for sure is that losing my ‘home’ in which to express my emotions (music) would leave me very empty. A frightening thought…|
|Q:||What are your views on music education?|
|A:||Music education has to survive at all costs. How could not having the only universal language as part of the school curriculum even be a consideration?|
