Gustavo Dudamel – Classical Music – Los Angeles Philharmonic – New York Times:
Across Venezuela the sistema has established 246 centers, known as nucleos, which admit children between 2 and 18, assign them instruments and organize them into groups with instructors. Typically practicing for two or three hours every day, the children are performing recognizable music virtually from the outset.
This venezuelan program seems to be what i think we can do with most education. Just give the kids some PCR systems and let’s teach them some biology. Go for it, some kids won’t get it, some kids will be amazing. The key it seems to me is to ‘trust them’ as they are the future, so give them access to knowledge and let them practice and experiment from the start.
