Shining Eyes and the Power of Music

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.
