I love to listen to TED Talks online. If you have never seen/heard one, I urge you to take a few minutes to enjoy this one: http://www.ted.com/talks/benjamin_zander_on_music_and_passion.html. It's a wonderful demonstration of the power of music, and a strong argument for more music education in our schools. This is why I play CDs of classical music during open times in the elementary school library where I work. We all need more -- not less -- exposure to beauty.
