Do you really know what "people" are "set on"? Just because of songs posted here?
My point was that soooooooooooooooo much pother music is missed as a result.
where did I write this, can you please quote this for me, thanks.
It does seem an overreach. Not something I would normally say or should say.
If you are arguing that you want to broaden the musical education of children in the United States so that they can appreciate and understand many genres of music, you will get no argument from me! I strongly support musical education. Is that what you would ultimately like to see happen in order to change American tastes? (And should this thread be somewhere else ?)
You did not say it. But your obsession with the dominance of pop and guitar shows a fear that people are leaning that way. As I said above, though, I am in favor of broadening musical horizons.
Music is very much as much an identification of tribe as it the cloths you wear or the smartphone brand you choose.
To some extent this is true, but when children are exposed to many possibilities early in life, some of the ones whose "tribe" might make narrow choices can have their horizons broadened.
The exposures you give a child will inspire them when choosing a tribe. In that you are correct.
You children sound accomplished.
