Taste... teachable?

"Students, both children and adult" have to experience and understand the role of arts in an increasingly complex world. Consumerism is a fickle friend.

To appreciate the "finer things" in life whether they are rock bands, symphony orchestras, jazz sets, opera, or song recitals... They have to understand what it takes to "DO THAT".
Even then, there is no guarantee that they will like it and that has to be okay too.

We as artists are charged to share with them our skills, and to teach them about all that they have as an opportunity, even if/when it exceeds our own ability. We must do more than entertain our world.
