Thrivist Education Week In Review

A special note this week as we recognize the loss of Prince who contributed to the musical education of many and made a significant impact on the Arts.

Honoring a Legend

  • Prince on His Musical Education
    • On making music a priority
      "My greatest musical education I think came from listening to records. And I think that should be integrated into the school system, that kids learn and hear from the musicians themselves why they got into music in the first place. It's a God-given gift and when a musician gives back onto that glory, it's a wonderful thing."
      – on MTV
    • On the importance of teachers
      "That's what makes the world go around. We all need each other, and again, it's about good mentoring and good teachers. I had a lot of good people around."
      – to Tavis Smiley
