Quote of the Month
submitted by Marijean
I'm an Elementary Instrumental Music instructor, and having three elementary
schools, and having to do two different classroom bulletin boards can be a big
challenge. This year I came up with what I thought was a good idea, having kind
of the "quote of the month." At the end of the year last year, a
retiring teacher was giving away some of her bulletin board things, and among
these I found a globe. So, I'm using the globe along with music sayings about
the world. For Christmas I used "Joy to the World," and before that I
used "Music...the Universal Language." Now I'm using a line from one
of Rogers and Hammerstein's musicals, Oklahoma, to be exact, "All the
sounds of the Earth are like Music."
***I LOVE this idea! I already have some favorite musical quotes from a book
of Musical Quotations by Ian Crofton, Donald Fraser. It is nicely arranged
and organized and is very handy during music in our schools month for fabulous
quotes by famous musicians and about the importance of music in our schools.
