[Paul McCartney] said he hated music at school. He went through the whole of his education and nobody thought he had any musical talent whatsoever […]

And he missed it.

From a certain Sir Ken Robinson. If this quote fascinates you, you might be interested in taking a look at his video speech “Do schools kill creativity?
