Plato

“Music training is a more potent instrument than any other, because rhythm and harmony find their way into the secret places of the soul.”

Albert Einstein

“It occurred to me by intuition, and music was the driving force behind that intuition. My discovery was the result of musical perception.” (When asked about his theory of relativity)

Shinichi Suzuki

“Teaching music is not my main purpose. I want to make good citizens. If a child hears fine music from the day of his birth, and learns to play it himself, he develops sensitivity, discipline and endurance. He gets a beautiful heart.”

Ludwig van Beethoven

“Music is the electrical soil in which the spirit lives, thinks and invents.”

Confucius

Paul Hindemith

Friedrich Nietzsche
