Music education helps students engage with learning and has many positive benefits. Today's guest, Tiffany Kerns, Executive Director of the CMA Foundation talks about remarkable music teaching and their quest to recognize the top music teachers in the United States.

  • Music education gives students an exciting and creative reason to be in the classroom. Student engagement in music class creates better attendance, which translates to higher test scores and graduation rates.
  • There is significant data proving the positive impact music has on a student’s ability to retain, learn, and articulate information. This is seen especially in reading – without an improvement in literacy alone, our country will not be able to properly support this generation.
  • Some of the benefits of music education include higher graduation rates, a greater chance of post-secondary success, social and emotional development, and shaping the next generation to be collaborative, creative and forward-thinking leaders.

Will AI Help Education or Ruin It? The Pitfalls and Possibilities of AI.




Artificial Intelligence (AI) is only as moral and as good as those who create it. Today, AI ethics thought-leader Joe Fatheree and I discuss this topic.

Without discussing the ethics of AI and its algorithms, we risk opening the ultimate Pandora’s box of technology problems when we should instead work to get hope out of the AI box and keep the demons that could misuse and abuse us locked away. I’m not too sure we currently have the moral capacity and knowledge of right and wrong to wisely use AI. Either way, AI is here and we can be part of the conversation or we can sit in the corner and say “Nah Nah Nah I can’t hear you” until AI hears us and builds a cage around our little corner from which we cannot escape because ultimately, the key to any technology is crafted by those who make themselves part of the conversation.
