  Brenda Duncan Music Studio
Her private students, primarily in Austin, Texas, learn to use their musical skill to serve their community by promoting goodwill and charitable causes, performing publicly at nursing homes, hospitals and special fundraisers for non-profit groups.
She is joined by a great teaching staff who believes the process of learning to play an instrument naturally engages much more than the physical (or technical) aspects of playing or singing a piece of music.
Some of the music "homework" requires the family to participate with the student, challenging the student to "teach" their knowledge to a sibling, neighbor or parent.

 Maximum Joy: Unlimited (1979-1983) - PopMatters Music Review
Musically, the group's use of complex percussion, horns, danceable bass lines, and overtly English female vocals built a bridge between the worlds of Afrobeat, reggae, avant-garde jazz, funk, and pop.
It might be appropriate to call the group's genre-bending blend of sounds "world music", if that term wasn't associated with so much boring music.
Maximum Joy's music is more exciting and adventurous than what passes for "world music" today, and is most aptly compared to the output of other experimental acts of the post-punk era such as the Pop Group, the Slits, Rip Rig & Panic, and New Age Steppers.

 Sugar Minott: The Roots Lover 1978-1983 - PopMatters Music Review
It was a heady, tumultuous time in the history of music, a time of dramatic phase-shifts in all forms of Western music, including what would later be filed in the chain stores as “reggae”.
Like raga in the east, which was infused with new relevance through interaction with European concepts, reggae in the west was beginning to internalize aspects of American music—not much, just bits and pieces.
By the time Minott made his arrival on the music scene in, Jamaica’s output was attracting international attention.

Naturally the brothers didn't, and the 1983 soundtrack Staying Alive is proof they still had their touch, whether the populous was ready to admit it or not.
The music overtakes Barry's vocals, which I think are about the same old surviving the city et al, but the lyrics and lack of harmony here are a miss.
Although this soundtrack didn't do as well as Fever for a number of reasons, one naturally being the song quality is a tad lower, but also, the movie and the music aren't as perfectly matched.
