“Gov. Hickenlooper asked me to be involved because I’m a Colorado musician and I care about music education,” Mohr said. “I’m really proud to be a part of it.”

Mohr said he grew up with music in his household.

“I grew up in Colorado and went to Sheridan schools and I was a third-grader in Sheridan and we were poor; but they had musical instruments for us, they had education and they had a great musical teacher,” Mohr said. “It got me involved in music which became a lifetime love for me.”

He said music gave him a career and he can’t say enough about what music education means to young people.

“It’s learning how to listen and work together with other kids and other people who are your fellow musicians to make something great,” he said. “It has, obviously, incredible educational benefits in mathematics and so on, but it really has human benefits.”
