Some good music and education quotes:

"Music is the shorthand of emotion." Tolstoy

"Fast makes slow but slow makes faster." Anonymous

"Conceptual understanding is imperative for intrinsic involvement." Americole Biasini

“The man that hath no music in himself,
Nor is not moved with concord of sweet sounds,
is fit for treasons, stratagems and spoils.” – William Shakespeare

"I was born with music inside me. Music was one of my parts. Like my ribs, my kidneys, my liver, my heart. Like my blood. It was a force already within me when I arrived on the scene.
It was a necessity for me-like food or water." Ray Charles
