Today we muse on what it means to use a CM education with advanced and struggling children, and eventually reflect on how we can reframe what it means to be ahead or behind.

Note: “Moonlight on the Ching Yang ( Xun_vang) River” (2:02). This piece dates from the Tang dynasty and is attributed to Yu Shinan. The pipa and the erhu play much of the main melodic line in unison. The Xiao  embellishes the melody and  ornaments some of the longer notes. This is a performance of Jiangnan fichu by an early touring group from Shanghai. ~The Concise Garland Encyclopedia of World Music
