#beginquote# Hello Dr. Brandon, I enjoyed reading your post, and agree that music should be taught in schools, starting with grade school. There is one thing I'm not clear on - I love music, classical, broadway musicals (not all), dixieland jazz etc.. I don't like contemporary music, it sounds like loud noise to me. In fact, I've been taking piano lessons for about 4 1/2 years and I'm in my 60's talk about a late start - I'm not clear on what art music is. Both my father and mother were musicians. My mother was a contralto (Juiliard Graduate) and my faher was an accompianist. I remember that my mother said she liked German Leider - as crazy as this seems, I don't know how this is classified. I usually go to the freebe's that Juilliard gives. Sometimes I attend the pre-college concerts, I wish you could see and hear the beautiful music that these young kids make. I also attend the concerts given by the College Level group - I sometimes wonder how all these talented musicians will make out once they graduate. It's a rough business, and multiply these grads with all the other conservatories. As for concert attendance, it can be expensive. Carnegie Hall charges $35-45 to sit in the "ski-slope" section. The better locations can be over $100 depending whose performing, the same holds true for Avery Fisher Hall. I think Avery Fisher hall has a special deal for students. I'm not sure about Carnegie Hall. Maybe it comes from being raised in a musical family, but I think there will always be an audience for music, can't imagine not having music. Now back to practicing - if I only could come close to playing what I "hear". Many thanks for taking the time to write a very important and interesting post. :) #endquote#
