Today is the Big Day – Entrepreneurship Meets Music Student!

My students and I have been eagerly anticipating this day all year long! Tonight is the culmination of our year of Quest for Capital! Tonight is…The Gallery!

I think of tonight’s event as a sort of entrepreneurship-meets-music-student endeavor. Part of my vision was to give students a framework to work within to develop creative projects that relate to music in some way. Yes, we want to become excellent pianists, but it’s also important for us to see music in the context of the world around us. All of life should be cohesive and integrated. We shouldn’t fragment and segment the pieces of our lives into separate corners, but rather find ways to interlock them (like a puzzle) so that they form a beautiful whole.

Ultimately, I believe that Jesus Christ is the one by whom everything is held together in life (see Colossians 1). He gives meaning and purpose to every worthy pursuit. Within our lives, though, there are so many possibilities for us and our students to integrate music with other areas. That’s what I hope each of my students has gleaned and continues to remember from their preparations for tonight. I also wanted them to experience how exciting it is to be a producer and not merely a consumer in our society. And there are lots of other things that I hope this year’s practice incentive theme has accomplished as well :-)…but for now, here’s a list of the projects that will be on display at The Gallery:

  • A Year of Praise with Psalm 150 Calendar
  • Capturing God’s Creation Musical Slideshow
