#beginquote# I agree wholheartedly with what has been written in these posts. In teaching kids today I wonder if it is possible to use a "bsck door" approach to teaching classical music. For exampla start with whatever is popluar and gradually show how all music is related. Maybe it's possible to reach some students, some is better than none. I'm not a teacher, so I don't know if this approach is possible or would work. I just think if you start with what the kids know and listen to, at least you have their attention for 2 seconds. There is/was a program to bring music back to the schools in New York City, but lack of funds and every other kind of lame excuse have been made. Here I go again with what my father said, music or any of the arts is a discipline and learning will help in schoolwork - he said it a lot better than I just did. I think that some of the better public shools and some private schools have programs that have music programs, though I'm not sure. Sometimes I see school buses parked alongside Lincoln Center - maybe there's hope. It's good to know there are educators who are bringing and teaching music to all students - you never can tell, exposure to music is what counts. They might squirm in their seats now, but end up enjoying music has they get older. :) #endquote#
