Music Educators Journal is celebrating its centennial this year!

Here is an article from 1937, written by Lilla Belle Pitts, called "Music Education, Isolated or Integrated?”.  Her opinion is that music should be integrated into the school curriculum, both for itself and for all it can bring to other forms of learning.
