"In music is everything from the movements of the heavens to the chirping of crickets, the ringing of church bells and of cell phones, the splashing of water and the howling at the moon, the whispers of new lovers, and cacophonous clatter of embattled couples and the lonely cry of the broken hearted."
Wynton Marsalis' keynote address at the 2012 Midwest Band and Orchestra Clinic in Chicago: "Teaching Music in the 21st Century", a message to all music teachers/band directors.
"Know that everything you do makes a difference. It’s all
very personal and important, and it lasts. It’s much deeper
than notes... much, much deeper."
Wynton Marsalis is an internationally acclaimed musician, composer, bandleader, educator and a leading advocate of American culture. He is the world’s first jazz artist to perform and compose across the full jazz spectrum from its New Orleans roots to bebop to modern jazz.
