Music is a power that drives darkness from the hearts of men and replaces that darkness with passion for life. When you have music in the heart, you cannot help but seek out music everywhere you go. You strive to shun hatred and intolerance, fear and ignorance. You instead find compassion and beauty, love and unity. You pursue things that bring people together and scorn that which drives them apart. You gain hope and lose despair. Music makes the heart noble, passionate, humble, and understanding. There is nothing we need more in this world than hearts filled with music. -- Joshua Arrieta

Hearts Filled With Music
Recently a university student of mine gave me a written paragraph about what he thought about the importance of music in everyone's lives. I wanted to share this quote with you. It was written by Joshua Arrieta, a senior computer science major and one of the violin teachers with the String Project at Texas State University.
