Music:The World’s Storyteller 
Stories are the fabric of life.
We learn more from stories than from anytextbook because they are personal.They resonate at the core of our being and shinea light on what it is that makes us human. Language, as essential as it is, is an unfor-tunate barrier to the universal sharing of our stories.Fortunately, we have music.Musicis the bridge that connects us all.
Music tells the stories that language itself cannot.
Musicbypasses the spoken word and goes directly to our core - that same core that is somoved by a good story.Through music we learn fascinating and unexpected thingsabout both ourselves and others with whom we share this wonderful planet.Music trulyis
the world’s storyteller,
and when we listen deeply, we become a part of that story.
