  1. I think teaching popular music might work for some students in the upper middle and high school grades. But the little ones need to be exposed to all styles so that they may develop their own criteria and musical taste.
    The reason why there is such poor quality pop music playing on the radio today is because most listeners are not taught how to descriminate and don’t understand what musical elements make bring quality to a song. In other words, if the song has enough hook to remember it for the rest of the day, they’ll enjoy it because it’s familiar, not necessarily because it’s good. 😦
    It’s sad but true. We need to introduce all kinds of music to the little ones so that they may grow up to be music supporters of the less known but highly talented, creative performer.
