The virtue of Music
A page from my sketchbook.
As I post this, neighbors across the way are playing music. It is rock and roll. What is it about loud, too often bad guitar playing that young boys are drawn to? What is it about loudness that says that it is good?
Where are the parents when children show interest in music? Why not a cello, or a harp or perhaps a lute or nylon string guitar? Why aren't the kids saying, 'teach me about the orchestra'?
Why must it always be electric and not acoustic?
