Exhibit looks at music education

Entrance to music education

Erin Averill (left) and Allison Kusilek of River Falls, Wis., view the entrance to the part of the Sounds Good to Me: Music in Minnesota exhibit that deals with music education, trends in its history and its role in our lives. They're looking at a photo captioned, "Hey, Mr. Knutson, I've got gum in my spit valve!" A century ago, strict teachers taught music as a social grace, but after the 1960s, educators began emphasizing the idea that everyone has musical talent.
