A Principal Speaks on Music

A Doorway to Learning

This is the opening of a blog post written by a principal, Jim Warnock, who keeps a blog called Principal Notes Thoughts About Education.

Two sixteenth notes followed by two eighth notes.  The interval was a perfect fourth, though I didn’t know that at the time.  What I did know, at twelve years old, was that I was hooked on that sound.  I leaned over to my mother and said, “I want to play those.”  I was pointing at the timpani, sometimes called kettledrums. That concert changed the course of my life.

It’s worth the read at A Doorway to Learning.
