Got this from Facebook (via Leslie Harris) about kids and the arts via a guy named Darryl A. Chamberlain:
must always remember the importance of giving our best to our kids.
Here is the Monti's Czardas played by The Kanneh-Mason kids. This is
what happens when you are willing to get music lessons for your kids.
I always tell anyone who will listen - but especially elected officials - that after class size, the arts seem to be the most important thing to parents for their children. Mr. Chamberlain speaks of getting music lessons for your kids which may be difficult for many parents (time, cost, getting your child there) but if we had more arts in our schools, that would be something most parents would be overjoyed to see.
Not to start a fight but we were having a discussion on another thread about sports in schools. Which would you rather see funded and finding the time for - sports or arts?
