Teaching music is not my main purpose. I want to make good citizens. If children hear fine music from the day of their birth and learn to play it, they develop sensitivity, discipline and endurance. They get a beautiful heart.

-Shinichi Suzuki

Thanks, Divertimenti for posting this quote.

(Just a note, though: I have to say that while I do like this quote I actually have met some musicians who are not sensitive, discliplined and are, to be honest, pretty yucky people … so I don’t believe music is the Answer To Everything. Just so you know. 🙂
