Between 1990 until today I have visited many schools, both in the US and in Europe, schools with comprehensive music programs involving every child. I have made mini-documentary films in these schools where I interviewed children, parents, classroom teachers, music teachers and school principals. I have for thirty-three years repeatedly heard and seen the powers of music when many children get to make music as part of their school day.
