David Darling, a true innovator in the field of music improvisation and free creative expression has developed a musical bill of rights that supports any human being with an interest in making music. Along with flautist Bonnie Insull, they created the Music for People program in 1986.
A Bill of Musical Rights Developed by David Darling/Music for People
Human beings need to express themselves daily in a way that invites physical and emotional release.
Musical self-expression is a joyful and healthy means of communication available to absolutely everyone.
There are as many different ways to make music as there are people.
The human voice is the most natural and powerful vehicle for musical self-expression. The differences in our voices add richness and depth to music.
Sincerely expressed emotion is at the root of meaningful musical expression.
Your music is more authentically expressed when your body is involved in your musical expression.
The European tradition of music is only one sound. All other cultures and traditions deserve equal attention.
Any combination of people and instruments can make music together.
There are no “unmusical” people, only those with no musical experience.
Music improvisation is a unique and positive way to build skills for life-expression.
In improvisation as in life, we must be responsible for the vibrations we send one another.
