Do you teach classical music? If so, you’re likely quite the classical music aficionado. Are your students the same? Just because your students are young, doesn’t mean they can’t enjoy classical music. They should be enjoying classical music. It’s the unfortunate truth that a lot of young musicians won’t go on to have much proficiency at the instrument they’re taking lessons to learn. This is often because of lack of practice. I don’t believe that we should just concede that this will always be the case, but at the very least if as teachers we can help build a love of classical music in the students we’re teaching, I believe that to be a big success in and of itself.
