Music Education & Appreciation Month on MiND took us to South Africa, to the inner workings of a pipe organ, to get swept away in the amazing power of collective feminist voices and to simply take a minute to stop, and listen to the music.
We decided to dedicate an entire month to music for so many reasons. But most of all, because of its universal power to connect us all to each other, to ourselves, and to the greater world.
We were very fortunate to have so many talented hearts and voices participate in Music Education & Appreciation on MiND . We want to thank all of you for your continued contributions to making this world a better, and more beautiful, place.
To all of our viewers and fans, we encourage you to pick up an instrument and play. To blast, and sing along to, your favorite songs as you commute along 76 or 95 with the windows down. To let your unique voice be the loudest one in your family when you sing happy birthday to a loved one. (I know mine is truly what they call “flat” and I am definitely “tone deaf” but that doesn’t stop me - even if the cat the leaves the room, I sing it like I feel it). If you ask me, letting music into your life is about experiencing the joy of being alive. It’s not about being classically trained (though that helps), or hitting the perfect notes or knowing all the words. It’s about keeping an open heart and living a musical life.
There is only one week left for Music Education & Appreciation Month on MiND, but that doesn’t mean the appreciation of music in our lives has to stop! Keep the beat going!
And remember, if you missed the premiere of the special hour of 5-minute programs all about music- you get another chance!
Tune in March 27th at 8pm for 11 great programs that will lift you up, make you think, and maybe stomp your feet.
