JACOPERA wants to send warm wishes of gratitude to all of the music educators out there! Without the patience, tenacity, dedication, and support we’ve all received from our teachers, mentors, and professors none of us would be the artists we are today. It takes a special person to be an educator, and with the title comes a lifelong dedication to art and its importance in society. We encourage everyone to take the time today and reach out to an educator that helped shape the person and artist you have become.
“Music enhances the education of our children by helping them to make connections and broadening the depth with which they think and feel. If we are to hope for a society of culturally literate people, music must be a vital part of our children’s education. ”
