This track was created by my grandson — he studies on his own; he’s taken only a few lessons, but those were not what was in his mind. He is a near expert on Beethoven, but none of this is from school. His talents are not known there. Luckily, he may forego homework to develop this. Because this and his ability to analyze both the music and the life of what is his passion, is more who he is. This, and wrestling and coding.

What we are missing in school is this: time for all students to develop their talents, in their own way, as experts in that passion. Pursuing those passions will do more to develop critical and creative thinkers and problem-solvers than any skills forced upon them.
