Episode 98: Good Music Really Matters

 

Many of us enroll our children in music programs because we want them to have a foundation in music theory, perhaps learn to play an instrument, and ultimately, to be able to appreciate the beauty of musical expression. Today’s extraordinary guest, award-winning composer and author, Michael Kurek, is here to tell us why Good Music Really Matters.
