Pdf - what if music was taught the same way we teach mathematics?

This is a very good read. Math is far from being the dull boring shit they force down your throat in high school - it is creative thinking exemplified.

It's a shame, really.

The first chapter of Concrete Mathematics is very good for expressing this in such a way that (I think) everyone who reads it would have that "oh shit, math is actually awesome" moment.
