SRMTA Mission Statement . . .
. . . . . . to promote progressive ideas in music education, to encourage professionalism in the art of teaching,
and to stimulate a high standard of music and culture.
THAT IS WHY I TEACH MUSIC
NOT because I expect you to major in music.
NOT because I expect you to play or sing all your life.
NOT so you can relax and have fun.
So you will be human
So you will recognize beauty
So you will be sensitive
So you will be closer to an infinite beyond this world
So you will have something to cling to
So you will have more love, more compassion, more gentleness, more good...in short, more life.
Of what value will it be to make a prosperous living unless you know how to live?
