Music can change the world, because music can change people. – Bono
What is incredible to me about music is that it gives space for connections to flourish. One of my mentors once said that if everyone was forced to be in a choir, the world would work together forever. Music is the universal language, it allows us to connect to deep levels of our brain and self that we sometimes forget exist. That is why I am a music educator, because it allows youth to be themselves in the most raw way.
