Sí, justo a algo así me refería. Si se pudiera organizar un grupo de 
trabajo, que reuniera representatividad del sector, y elaborara algo 
por el estilo y le diera forma aplicable al marco español, que los 
colegas consideraran correcto, que todo el mundo apoyara, ¡se podría 
llegar muy lejos (creo yo)! 

Digamos que, ya que los políticos no lo hacen, hay que avanzarles 
terreno para que luego lo cojan ya hecho... ¿no? Así, en lugar de 
llevarles quejas, se les llevan también propuestas de solución. 

Con todo, para mí el punto principal es que habría que teorizar sobre 
qué puede aportar la educación musical que no aporten otras materias 
educativas. Porque cosas tan amplias como que los estudiantes dotados 
para el ritmo (!!!) parecen ser también más capaces de conseguir otras 
habilidades académicas y se organizan mejor en su vida diaria quizás 
fuera demasiado vago para los tiempos de concreciones que corren.

Ojalá se pudiera trabajar bien sobre este tipo de cosas. Una lista 
electrónica podría ser un buen punto de partida.

tubo en la anterior legislatura el Presidente del Gobierno con los 
representantes de la música en España en el Palacio de la Moncloa:

>Music Advocacy’s Top Ten Quotes 
>1. “During the Gulf War, the few opportunities I had for relaxation I 
always listened to music, and it brought me great peace of mind. I have 
shared my love of music with people throughout this world, while 
listening to the drums and special instruments of the Far East, Middle 
East, Africa, the Caribbean, and the Far North, and all of this started 
with the music appreciation course that I was taught in a third-grade 
elementary class in Princeton, New Jersey. What a tragedy it would be 
if we lived in a world where music was not taught to children.”- 
General H. Norman Schwarzkopf — United States Army
>2. “Music is exciting. It is thrilling to be sitting in a group of 
musicians playing (more or less) the same piece of music. You are part 
of a great, powerful, vibrant entity. And nothing beats the feeling you 
get when you've practiced a difficult section over and over and finally 
get it right. (yes, even on the wood block.) Music is important. It 
says things you heart can't say any other way, and in a language 
everyone speaks. Music crosses borders, turns smiles into frowns, and 
vice versa. These observations are shared with a hope: that, when 
schools cut back on music classes, they really think about what they're 
doing - and don't take music for granted.”- Dan Rather — CBS News
>3. “In every successful business…there is one budget line that never 
gets cut. It’s called ‘Product Development’ – and it’s the key to any 
company’s future growth. Music education is critical to the product 
development of this nation’s most important resource – our children.”- 
John Sykes — President, VH1
>4. “The things I learned from my experience in music in school are 
discipline, perseverance, dependability, composure, courage and pride 
in results. . . Not a bad preparation for the workforce!”- Gregory 
Anrig – President, Educational Testing Service
>5. “Music is an essential part of everything we do. Like puppetry, 
music has an abstract quality which speaks to a worldwide audience in a 
wonderful way that nourishes the soul.”- Jim Henson – television 
producer and puppeteer
>6. “Should we not be putting all our emphasis on reading, writing and 
math? The ‘back-tobasics curricula,’ while it has merit, ignores the 
most urgent void in our present system – absence of self-discipline. 
The arts, inspiring – indeed requiring – self-discipline, may be more 
‘basic’ to our nation survival than traditional credit courses. 
Presently, we are spending 29 times more on science than on the arts, 
and the result so far is worldwide intellectual embarrassment.”- Paul 
Harvey – syndicated radio show host
>7. “It's [music education] terribly important, extremely important -- 
because when you are a child, you are in a receptive age ... In high 
schools, public schools -- that's where they must have the best 
influence, the first influence, which will go through their whole life.”
- Eugene Ormandy – conductor of The Philadelphia Orchestra
>8. “It is our job, as parents, educators, and friends, to see that 
our young people have the opportunity to attain the thorough education 
that will prepare them for the future. Much of that education takes 
place in the classroom. We must encourage our youngsters in such 
pursuits as music education. In addition to learning the valuable 
lesson that it takes hard work to achieve success, no matter what the 
arena, music education can provide students with a strong sense of 
determination, improved communication skills, and a host of other 
qualities essential for successful living.”- Edward H. Rensi – 
President and Chief Operation Officer, U.S.A. McDonald's Corporation
>9. “A grounding in the arts will help our children to see; to bring a 
uniquely human perspective to science and technology. In short, it will 
help them as they grow smarter to also grow wiser.”- Robert E. Allen – 
Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, AT&T Corporation
>10. “Some people think music education is a privilege, but I think it’
s essential to being human.”- Jewel – singer, songwriter, and

>9. Medical researchers have reported that subjects lowered bother 
their systolic and diastolic blood pressure as much as five points 
(mm/Hg) and reduced heart rates by four to five beats per minute 
following music listening sessions. People with high blood pressure can
