Would you recommend Listen for Life?

by Bro./Dr. Martin F. from Lafayette,, LA (September 25, 2009)
As Music Director of the "Christian Brothers" College of Santa Fe, N.M., 1966-73, I began to add "authentic,traditional Native American Indian music to my "Music Methods and Materials" classes for elementary teacher training. It appeared to be a "dying musical art" and I wanted to join those who were trying to revive and promote it. Over the years I found diminishing interest in this "First American" art form, not from the serious student, but from the "consumerism" of the economy that would rather promote more "popular" (and lucrative) forms of music. Eventually I found myself as the "only" music education specialist and consultant using this beautiful, yet "primitive", art form in my area. As a religious Brother with a "vow of poverty" I have very few "economical resources" to contribute to the cause, but I do have "time, interest and training and help "lead the charge" to preserve this underrepresented and dying "First American" art form...anyone out there interested?
