I must say, it sounds nice. This is good to get all these teenagers interested into classical music (or at least classical instruments)

Ha!

Conflicted. Mixed feelings. Put children on the classical track to begin with and you won't need to infiltrate pop culture to reach them (maybe--because you never know... everyone is an individual, just like those pianos). I was watching a wonderful program on PBS last evening about a teacher in Rye, NY in the '60s who was teaching Shakespeare to elementary level children. It was WONDERFUL. He made the stories real for them and they absorbed it like a sponge.

Who or what drives popular culture? Is it greedy media tycoons? Is it a mind-boggling phenomena? Is it you and me?

Who is to say that "classical" music should live forever? Who is to say that "pop" music is empty? If a person encounters the depth of human experience in a popular song, how is that different than if I experience the depth of human experience in a classical composition?

I'm asking a lot of questions because I haven't the sightest idea of an answer.
