What Does The Movie AUGUST RUSH Have To Do With The Current And Future States Of Music Education?

Owen Bradley posted a very thought provoking article about what he experienced as a music educator after seeing the movie August Rush.   His questions and statments made me think quite a bit about the future and current state of music education and technology.   So as usual…I wrote… and wrote… and wrote…. in his comment section.  You know WRITING really does clarify thought! ;)
