Wise words

“When words fail, music speaks.” Hans Christian Anderson

“Music is an outburst of the soul.” Frederic Delius.

“When it speaks of music, language is lame.” George Steiner.

“Education in music is most sovereign because, more than anything else, rhythm and harmony find their way to the inmost soul and take strongest hold upon it, bringing with them and imparting grace.” Plato, The Republic.

“Music is what feelings sound like.” Unknown.

“Remember, information is not knowledge; knowledge is not wisdom; wisdom is not truth; truth is not beauty; beauty is not love; love is not music; music is the best.” – Frank Zappa.

“Did you know that we do music
when we don’t expect it?
And music is really important so we should
all try to do lots of music.

You don’t have to buy music, you can
make music by body parts
and tins and other stuff like that”

Kirsty Holford, aged 8 and a half
