  • Musicking: To music is to take part, in any capacity, in a musical performance, whether by performing, by listening, by rehearsing or practicing, by composing, or by dancing.”
    -Christopher Small
       Music epitomizes man's capacity for creativity and is an essential part of a complete education. The acts of performing, creating, and responding to music are fundamental processes that humans engage in to connect historically, culturally and socially.
