"For our society to move forward, for our culture to survive, fine arts education must remain strong. We already know that kids who study music do better in physics and math.

"If I were not a physicist, I would probably be a musician. I often think in music. I live my daydreams in music. I see my life in terms of music." Albert Einstein

Tom Horne, Arizona Superintendent of Public Instruction
