I have already stated that I will no longer debate what status any given
subject should have in the school. I changed the title deliberately to get
off that subject.

The posting to which I had responded had switched to addressing the content
of the music course rather than the status of the course and my reply stayed
within the limits of addressing the content.

So as you can probably guess, I'm not going to comment to the points that
you suggest.
