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

What in the hell was that?
A programmer is someone who solves a problem you didn't know you had in a way you do not understand.

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.
