“Perhaps it is music that will save the world” – Dr. Shinichi Suzuki

Was Dr Suzuki influenced by Dostoevsky’s well known prophetic statement “Beauty will save the world.” when he wrote these words? They are very alike, and are in essence a mandate to make art, write novels and poems, dance, sing and compose. Especially in times of unrest, uncertainty, injustice, conflicting ideologies and politics, in times where it is difficult to sort the truth out from the lies, honest mistakes from intentional harm, times where ideologues in their respective camps spend billions on fear mongering and propagandizing, these are the times when those of us who feel called by the muse can help sustain our communities, heal divisions, and reflect beauty. Beauty WILL save the world. I’m a believer.
