Empowering Ourselves & Building Community Through Arts
Universal Music Day speaks to everyone and especially to the 80% of the population who only “wish” they made Music. Let us include everyone, from tone-deaf to pro in this glorious process and demonstrate the Power of Music-Making. Music is just too important to our health and well-being to leave only to the professional Musicians and Super-stars.
* Music-Making nourishes our souls.
* Music-Making helps us deal with the whole continuum of human emotions.
* Music-Making could lead to Peace, Love, Joy, Justice & Compassion.
* Music feeds our spirits!
* Music is our Universal Language

WE DEDICATE UNIVERSAL MUSIC DAY TO THE MUSICIAN IN EACH OF US!!!
“Most people die with their music still in them.” ~ Oliver Wendell Holmes
“Improvisation is not the expression of accident but rather of the accumulated yearnings, dreams, and wisdom of our very soul.” ~ Yehudi Menuhin
Just as Earth Day has created awareness for the importance of caring for the Earth; Universal Music Day creates awareness for the importance of Sound, Silence, Vibration–known as Music. Music surpasses all other means of teaching Listening & Communication Skills!
You want your children, parents, bosses, employees to LISTEN and truly HEAR you — make Music together!
