The Cool Marketplace for Teachers: "Teaching Material Classical Music" or "Teaching Material Popular Classical Music" 

The marketplace " Teaching Material Classical Music" for teachers. More specific? For whom else could teaching material be good? Right! Then: Basically, I want to get teachers to introduce their kids to "actual" classical music very carefully with my way via popular classical music. Do you also teach music? Then at least give my approach enough of a chance so that you "at least consider a round" with my suggestions. I think I have discovered a "tool" that finally represents a real option for teachers to introduce classical music in such a way that some of the dwarfs could enjoy this genre of music for a lifetime. And the marketplace? Well, Bach, composers, classical music, pictures, entertainment ... it's simply a colorful mix on the subject, just like on a marketplace. ✓

 

"Teaching Material Classical Music": Sure, you probably know three of the gentlemen above. But do you also know the third expert from the left?

"Teaching Material Classical Music": If I Can Make You Happy with It ... then Would You also Please Try It with Your Kids?

 

All my approaches and publications are decidedly "out of the box" ... in German, "quer gestrickt". Even the Anglicisms (... on the German websites ) are consistently represented, because I love them. And the usual text already exists in so many publications. Let's consider a deal: If I succeed in making you smile and wonder in the coming sections (... under the brief description of the teaching material), then why don't you try it "for a round" approaching your kids with my idea. Instead of the other options that publishers have been offering for decades and the rest of the Internet has been offering for 20 years. But in advance there is already a short note about this, my "Teaching Material Classical Music".

 

To begin with, there is - first of all - the "light version": That's six components. You prepare yourself by exploring the definition of "What is classical music?" on my special website. To this you add the exciting compact knowledge that now follows on this page. Then on the aforementioned website is also a collection of 300 popular classical music works that are so perfect for an introduction to this genre. I call them my "Classical Music Top 100". And finally, you can use a compilation of the most popular Bach works with a running time of about 45 minutes as an MP3 file to accompany your lessons in a way that fits the topic. A little further down, a music button will take you directly there.

 

Hundreds of music gifts? We think you probably will rather find thousands of music gifts on 5 Internet platforms. To the shops.

 

 


The Protection Fee for the XXL Version Spread over 10 Year: That's the Equivalent of Only € 1.19 per Year ... my "Teaching Material Classical Music" for You

 

Why actually is this whole page an advertisement at all? Because I want to be quite sure that even such a small amount as the protective fee for an enormously exciting and extensive offer in the matter of "Teaching Material Classical Music" of only € 11.90 separates a separation of advertising content (... the ads = advertising) for example on this page of the website and the largest part of the website, namely the entertainment for kids in accordance with the law. And maybe also because you can order the offer from my wife's publishing house, and that is the "commercial" part of our mission. With the hint at the top of the page ... and also at the bottom ... I am therefore legally "on the right side" ... and you are "warned"!  > ✓ 

 

So now to the teaching material XXL on my marketplace in terms of "classical music" for teachers. By the way, this offer addresses your kids from the third to the sixth grade. Possibly also up to the eighth grade ... please decide for yourself.

 

For your entertainment, you will first get this reading below: interesting knowledge as well as the Bach music, as above in the light offer too. Plus the background information "What is classical music exactly?" and the "Classical Music Top100" with its 300 musical masterpieces. Also as above. Now follows the actual XXL package in terms of classical music and popular classical music. There is first a "homework" the core, the question/answer combinations compiled with much love.You can give it up in one day or in six days or in two, three, four or five days: 150 cool, easy questions with a lot of "aha experience", catch questions, practically already answered questions, exciting questions ...  and all in multiple choice answer style.

A next chance for you: No. 1 and No. 3 is general knowledge. The gentleman between Bach and Mozart already, not so much. But the colleague on the far right ... that's something completely different!

This is exactly how the 150 questions on 47 pages look. And that's almost exactly how the test, that is to say the class exam, looks.


For Your Face-to-face Classes or Online ... and All with Minimal Work for You: My Teacher Marketplace "Classical Music" + "Popular Classical".

 

The homework sheets completed above are handed in: on paper or as an electronically completed PDF, or simply photographed or scanned with the cell phone and sent to you. You do not correct them, but instead dump them: That is part of the project. Quite (un)secretly, your kids have been in touch with classical music for quite a while. 

 

The test follows ... as a PDF sent to you online or in a face-to-face class ... over one school lesson, or simply over two ... or more. The fact that it is always possible to "cheat" in between is an ( unmentioned) part of the project. The subject matter "classical music" should simply not cause any stress, should not be associated with pressure. 

 

Back to the test. The questionnaires are slightly graphically modified: So your kids cannot send or hand in the "homework" to you a second time. The test can also be divided into one to six approaches, depending on what you think is reasonable. As in American tests, the questions are 100 per cent the same as the "first round", i.e. the homework. You also collect the test or have it sent to you (as PDFs or photographed or scanned). At the top right of the test, there is again a field with the name of the student. You give the name a number and cut off the name. However, you do not correct these sheets yourself and alone! 
 
In the third school session, you distribute the sheets to your children again. Because you have replaced the names with numbers and the names have been cut off or deleted in the meantime, each child corrects the work of a classmate without knowing whose result he or she is assessing. You go through question by question together with your kids and get a compilation of about 125 facts from me, with which you – as entertainment – break up the pure correction and scoring. Each correct answer, judged very generously, results in one point. At the end, your students add up the points and the winner is decided. This "answer-and-info" offer was the biggest challenge in the project, and you can now decide how you want to work with your rattle gang: You call up the scrolling answers on your laptop++. And scroll to it. As a teleprompter, there is only one answer at a time, and it is much bigger on the screen, so you always click in the same place. The third offer is my moderation for you. I entertain your kids, the video is enriched with music and illustrations and of course you can stop it for a break. And it works in school, in online learning, in homeschooling, in alternating lessons and in any mix of these. Even at a table, one student can work with paper, the other environmentally friendly digitally. 
 
To make the introductory or further lessons different and even more exciting, popular classical music can be played in the background. A loudspeaker for your laptop, smartphone or tablet is available from around ten Dollars. For this, you can use 45-minute of Bach Music Special of the light version. In addition, you will receive four lists of other popular music titles from me, which are particularly suitable for a meanwhile second contact, but now by many classical composers. These four lists can be combined into four playlists. Or a DJane or DJ plays piece by piece, each by clicking on the work title in the list. Unfortunately, I am not allowed to compile a playlist or even an acoustic sequence of music titles for you. That is what GEMA's (... a powerful German association to protect copyrights) "rules of the game" stipulate with all German schools. I am "allowed" to do Bach, because I produced the music by myself (... and I am not affiliated with GEMA) and Johann Sebastian has been dead for a while now. 
 
You may ( ! ) use these collections of classical works of 45 minutes each, compiled by your children, in this, your lesson. But you may not use them for anything else. You may not use them in a workshop outside the school, you may not play them at an event (... whether inside or outside the school), you may not give them – as a copy – to your children, and you may not give them to your colleagues. The only thing you may do is: save them well, store them and use them again and again for the same purpose in the coming year and in the years after that. So the already small amount of work for you is reduced even further. You can play this music in the background of each lesson. In addition, your children should also listen to titles from the "Classical Music Top 100" at home. Ten pieces in total. Or 20 at two minutes each, or 30 at 30 seconds each. Or three pieces from beginning to end every day for four weeks. Whatever! Important: These regulations apply to the use of copyrighted music in Germany. However, I believe that the national institution mentioned above, GEMA, is the most powerful national institution of this kind in the world and, moreover, Germany is probably the strictest institution in terms of compliance with these regulations. Therefore, other societies of this kind are very likely to have followed this regulation. If in doubt, please check for yourself, as I am of course not allowed to give legal advice here. 
 
The winner in the competition "Teaching Material Classical Music" receives a certificate and an audiobook or an e-book, "The Bach Biography for Children". The special feature: All classmates may also download this book, which costs € 22 in each version. And that as an audiobook, as an e-book and as a version for the laptop. And not "either/or" but all three versions at the same time. For them every coming year with this one-time € 11.90 nominal fee. Only to colleagues and their kids, we ask you not to pass on this generous proposal. She or he should please buy her or his own "Teaching Material Classical Music" with the small nominal fee. By the way, the nominal fee serves to finance the very costly overall project and our common Bach missionAs a thank you for the "field test with me", you as an educator will receive my audio collage "The most beautiful quotes about Johann Sebastian Bach", with his music and a ten-minute short biography...  alone worth around ten Euros. Incidentally, both of the above-mentioned productions are spoken by a professional, or the quote collage even by two professional speakers who can also be heard on the radio and on television.

Here Is the Exciting Entertainment now ... Next – Below – You Will Find My Very Special "Philosophy"

On the subject of musical families, "the Bachs clearly play first fiddle". And what about the Kelly Family? They are not far away.

 

 

If I don't succeed in "hooking" you, animating you to read on and making you smile, how could I succeed with my offer for your children? What do you think about "adding" Bach's music very quietly to your reading now? Just click on the button here and off you go. ✓

"Funny+++ Facts" is the name of the material in the 20-part "Teaching Material Classical Music" and it is a free part. This means that you can already "work" with the following entertainment without any effort. However, it is also available in the XXL set ... as a compact unit.  And why the "+++"? 

 

"Funny Facts", I thought, was a cool headline for the collection of exciting, funny and curious things. But not everything that follows here is funny. Some of it is even sad. And that's where the "+++" come in. Typical me, again! So now to my "Funny+++ Facts". 

 

Let's start with Bach. Did you know that Johann Sebastian called all music that was not written for God "devilish noise"? He had 20 children, with two wives, but that ... is known. That only 10 reached adulthood, probably less. But that the Thuringian had five musical and four famous sons is known almost only among classical music connoisseurs and Bach fans. Incidentally, two of the four famous Bach sons became even more famous in their own time than their father was in his. Bach's famous St. Matthew Passion. The first performance was not even mentioned in the daily newspaper of the time. When was it performed a second time? Almost exactly 100 years later, they thought. Then they calculated again exactly and came up with 101 years later. Again to the hour, again on a Good Friday. It was conducted by Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy, who loved Bach's music and ushered in the "Bach Renaissance" with the second premiere of the St. Matthew Passion some 80 years after Bach's death. Bach's work was never lost, by the way. Musicians always knew where to find his sheet music and what quality his music had. But for 80 years, other music was the order of the day ... no one listened to Bach anymore. Today it's completely different. Do you know any families of musicians? The Richters are definitely one, the third largest, famous musical family. The Kellys definitely belong in the "top 10" as well. And – all over the world and for all time – it was and will remain the Bachs.  There are more than 200 musicians in the course of many, many generations who earned and earned their money with music. Today, ten Bachs alone do this in the USA, the Netherlands and Germany. Bach is said to have composed 11,000 works, of which only ten percent still exist today, according to the most respected Bach connoisseur on earth.  35 monuments around the world honor Bach. Most of them are in Germany, of course, but there is even one in Shanghai in China, in Barcelona, Spain, in Paris, France in Pittsburgh in the USA and in Prague, Czech Republic. 

By the way, the info button will take you to a very special website "Teaching Material Classical Music ". On it you can find out even more, even more condensed or – optionally – even more detailed.

Max Reger, himself one of the great classical composers, left the only handwritten quotation about Bach: "Bach is the beginning and end of all music". 

There are 66 quotes about Bach's work and person. A pope honored him, Albert Einstein, princes, kings and a gigantic number of Bach's colleagues who lived after him. He was, is and remains also the best organ player of all time. How to measure it? It is the judgement of many top musicians ... and on top ... Bach took a little stick in his mouth and used it to play the key he couldn't reach because "all his feet and hands were busy". This has not been handed down by anyone else. 

 

Mozart: You knew that he was called "Wolferl"... and his sister "Nannerl". That the Mozarts are a musical family is also not new. But that Mozart's full name was Johannes Chrysostomus Wolfgangus Theophilus Mozart is known to few. He also composed a six-part canon "Leck mich im Arsch" (Kiss my ass)." But I'll leave that aside in the questions for your kids. He made his first marriage proposal at the age of six, and he was not the inventor of the "Mozartkugel". It was initially called "Mozart candy" and was invented in Salzburg about 100 years after Mozart's death. Like Beethoven, Mozart had the absolute ear. Cool to know: Mozart hated the sound of flutes, which is why he composed his "Magic Flute" only very reluctantly, and as a commissioned work. 

"Wolferl", who hated the sound of flutes.

How long are classical works? Many are between three and five minutes long, just like today's hits. But of course there are plenty of classical works that are longer. By far the longest – albeit unknown – classical work is by the composer Erik Satie: It is a full 18 hours and 40 minutes long. There are 180 notes and they are supposed – according to the composer – to repeat themselves 840 times. "Vexations" is the title. The premiere in 1963 in New York was performed by 10 pianists who alternated. A single member of the audience endured it in its entirety. The longest – now famous – work by a famous classical composer is "Der Ring des Nibelungen" by Richard Wagner. That's only 16 hours. Thank heaven: It is performed in four parts and not in one piece. Perhaps the first "soap opera" ever. Or do I prefer to leave that thought out here? Probably the strangest piece of music is "4'33" by John Cage: It is four and a half minutes of silence. The question remains: Is it classical music? 

 

If Bach had actually produced the 11,000 works listed above, he would be the workaholic among the masters, but 1,128 surviving works is not a bad result either. If we consider the experts whose pieces are still playable today, then Telemann is number 1. He composed 3,600 pieces. Respect! You know that Bach went blind at the end of his life. You may also know that he went blind from cataracts and was operated on by the London oculist John Taylor when he was travelling through Europe. But the fact that his two operations on Bach and the one on Handel were unsuccessful is less common knowledge. But the fact that Taylor then botched another 100 operations is certainly new to you. 

John Taylor, oculist ... his profession: screwing up eye surgery! 

The gentleman on the left looks more like a father, the gentleman on the right more like a son: May I introduce you? The gentlemen Johann Strauss. ✓

Again on Liszt: He too was a hard-working musician. He composed 1,300 works.  Puccini's full name was Giacomo Antonio Domenico Michele Secondo Maria Puccini. Edward Grieg is the most famous Norwegian composer. And Sousa is an American. Two asteroids are named after Bach, and that is something special. There is also one named after Reger, but only one. Actually ... there is an asteroid named after every composer imaginable. There are around 989,000 of them, and you can run out of names. One of them is even called "Darth Vader", named after the all-black gentleman in the Star Wars saga. Carl Maria von Weber, like many a composer who has died, also left behind an unfinished work: his was called "Rübezahl" (Spirit of the Sudeten Mountains). 

 

Two golden records are on their way to "E.T. & Co." in space. In the probes "Voyager 1" and "Voyager 2". There is also classical music on them. But Bach has won in every respect. Three pieces by him are represented, and the total length also results in a point for Bach. By the way, the records are supposed to last at least 500 million years. That should also be enough. National anthems, surely everyone knows the melody of every anthem, if only it is their own. The shortest is definitely the Japanese one: a whole four lines long. But the Lebanese one is no longer. The longest is the Greek one, with 158 verses: that is probably a full evening ... with pauses and such. 

 

Schubert was also called "Schwammerl" by his friends, meaning "little mushroom". Because of his hairstyle and height. Beethoven was asked by fans for a curl. Because he didn't want to part with his main hair for everyone, he bought a dog, "Pumperl", and from then on Beethoven had curls at his disposal. Before that, he is said to have given the wife of a friend the tuft of hair of a goat. Today, you can still buy a curl of Beethoven's hair at auction. For € 39,000. Whether it is genuine and whether the price is still right is and remains the question.

 

The "Ave Maria"! First of all: which one? Because there are two famous ones, and Bach didn't compose either of them. So ... he didn't compose one in its entirety. He provided the musical basis, namely a melody from the "Well-Tempered Clavier". A French master of composition, Charles Gounod, liked it and composed a second melody on top of it. Today, the correct term would probably be "Ave Maria by Bach feat. Gounod". And so to the second "Ave Maria". Schubert composed it, and it is also called – how romantic – "Ellens dritter Gesang" (Ellen's Third Singing"! It has always been known that Mozart and Beethoven were musical prodigies ... surely you know it too. However, Bach scientists have only discovered in recent years that Bach was also a child prodigy. 

 

The fact that Bach lived to be a proud 65 years old, while Mozart was only a young 35 ... is not new knowledge for you. But the fact that Beethoven composed an "Elegy on the Death of a Poodle" is. Beethoven: This master of the century counted out exactly 60 coffee beans for his first cup of coffee in the morning. And that's probably how he did it with the coffees throughout the day. He moved 68 times: Something else always didn't suit him, and he changed his home. For 21 years, Beethoven became increasingly hard of hearing until he was finally completely deaf and continued to live and compose with this "silence" for another 8 years. This complete deafness began at the age of 48. 

 

Did you know that the Liszts and the Wagners are one big, famous family of musicians? And that there are actually only two famous female composers? Namely, Hildegard von Bingen, who left behind rather less classical music in our modern sense, and Clara Schumann? Bach died so non-wealthy – not poor – that there wasn't even enough money for a gravestone, and his widow had to apply to the Leipzig City Council for a pension for the poor. Moreover, the Leipzig City Council did not even donate a gravestone, nor did it provide for an honorable burial, after Bach had taken care of the music in Leipzig's churches for 27 years. And did even much more for Leipzig. Handel, on the other hand, died wealthy. He travelled all over Europe, whereas Bach stayed in what is now Germany. The exception: his trip to Karlsbad, which is not ... in Germany. 

 

Once again, to the Bachs, whose genealogy is infinitely complicated. How could it be simple if you don't know that the Berlin Bach is also the Hamburg Bach, and that the Milan Bach is also the London Bach at the same time? 

 

Did you know that the opera "Nabucco" was written by the Italian Verdi in Egypt? And that Verdi founded a retirement home for musicians that still exists today under the name "Casa Verdi"? Only the Russian composer Tchaikovsky could not find anything special about Bach's music, even though he enjoyed playing one of his fugues. And the first classical hit? Pachelbel's "Canon in F Major". Listen to his work on YouTube – via this link – and you will agree. You know that you can sing and play B-A-C-H, Bach's name. But did you also know that it can only be done in German-speaking countries, and why that is? The German national anthem ... is composed by an Austrian. Haydn composed it. The two most famous compositions by US Americans are the "Rhapsody in Blue" and, of course, the American national anthem. You probably knew that Johann Strauss, father is the inventor of the Viennese Waltz and his son, Johann Strauss is the Waltz King. But can you also remember which of the two is which? 

€ 39,000 for a curl of Ludwig van Beethoven's hair ... Now, if that's not a weird investment?! 

 

Mozart, by the way, was not the superstar that Falco (... a famous pop singer), who has been dead for a while, sang about. Beethoven was the rock star of his time. Half of Vienna's inner city population came to his funeral, 20,000 people. Children were off school that day and the Austrian army organized the proceedings. Finally, we let Johann Sebastian Bach "have his say" once again: He encouraged all his students, and certainly often their parents as well, by saying that playing the piano is not that difficult, you just have to press the right key at the right time. And on the subject of "practising", he said that anyone could play as well as he could, if only he practiced as much as he did. 

The same composers, a different coloring style.  ✓

 

 


My "Teaching Material Classical Music": Now Follows, as Promised, My Philosophy  ✓

First of all: My approach is provocative throughout. It starts with my definition of classical music to the question "What actually is classical music?" Because the answer is detailed ... and not "to the point". And it differs from all other opinions. Then my "Classical Music Top 100": Classical music fans would probably shudder. Finally, my educational path: far from "Peter and the Wolf" and the "Carnival of the Animals". Can I convince you? I don't know, but give my way a chance. Join my argumentation ... or "argue against it in front of your students". The established way until today always remains ready. In any case, my way does not spoil anything! Thank you. ✓

 

When kids and classical music "meet" for the first time, I think the ultimate caution is called for. Not then, if it is packaged as a story, like the presentation of "Peter and the Wolf" or the "Carnival of the Animals". That is altogether funny, not risky ... but has ... in terms of classical music, no lasting value in the sense of my aim. The Mignons or a modern animated film offer that almost as well: fun, entertainment, joy. But for me, it's about how to transmit to children that classical music can be enjoyable and how to get to know classical music.  ✓

 

I am referring to real classical music, such as Bach's "Air", famous pieces by Mozart or compositional highlights by Tchaikovsky. All of these titles are definitely not composed or "especially suitable" for children. In kindergarten and even later in school, children must have had a positive experience with classical music in order to continue listening to classical music in a future phase of their lives.   ✓

 

My path certainly leads via enthusiasm for popular classical music. Because from there, it can go straight on. There are then four options to choose from: If you don't like popular classical music, then conservative classical music won't be any fun either. The second option is to "get by" with the 300 most popular, light classical works: You simply listen to them again and again when you are in the mood. In the same arrangement or in a different order: I have already compiled these titles. The third option: 300 titles of popular classical music inspire you, and you look for more of them via a special radio format. This does not mean the full program of all classical music radio stations, but only a fraction of exactly one such station. Finally, the fourth option is the desire to discover more classical music, especially non-popular classical music. It is then a good idea to "consume" more works by all the composers whose popular offerings already appealed. Alternatively, you turn to the complete works of just the one musician whose pieces will be the most impressive for your kids in the future.  ✓

 

"Aha ... that is from this composer ..." was supposed to be my planned website for children for a long time, for many years. This resulted from my desire to once explore who composed the melodies that you hear again and again at long intervals on the radio, on television or in the movies by chance. To do this, I wanted to write to music institutions and ask and hear whether they could tell me about famous, popular works in addition to the composer who was specifically brought into the limelight there. But it didn't work out that way.    ✓

 

Via André Rieu's concerts, three years in a row, I found his offer on YouTube after realizing that 60 per cent of the works he performs are such popular classical music. For those who don't like Rieu ... after all, we only take him as a "means to an end" .... please be sure to read more about this here. On YouTube, the "... you-might-also-like-this" suggestions are, of course, always the most popular pieces of their kind and inevitably led me - with two weeks time invested - to my goal: my "Classical Music Top 100". These are the 300 most popular classical works ... as the name suggests: the "Classical Top 100".    ✓

 

It was only during the discovery of the last ten percent of popular "classical earworms" I realized that I already knew some such titles from my early childhood. In the kindergarten and primary school years, my parents also listened to such music. Now and then. Arranged and played by James Last and his orchestra. At that time, he was pretty much the only one who had a small range of such popular classical music in his program. Long before this music was called popular classical music. This, my discovery, led directly to my present philosophy.   ✓

So ... did you identify all the gentlemen composers in this pop design as well?   ✓

It's the same with very current music in today's charts: You have to listen to many pieces twice, three times or even four times. Only then do some works really inspire you and develop into super hits. You know that yourself, and it's the same with thousands and tens of thousands of people. And that's exactly how you can "prepare" it with classical music. To offer your kids of all ages – in fact of all ages, because you can "serve" that to your daughter and son already after birth – occasionally.   ✓

 

Now only a second important component is missing, which I also only encountered far, far after I began my search for such hits. Curious as it may sound: It is the term "popular"! It is "popular classical music" that you like so much. Just a few years ago, however, the memory of classical works that were already felt to be beautiful and the term "popular" together would not have got you anywhere near as far as it does today. For many decades there was no summary of such classical "earworms" at all, and before the time of the Internet there was none at all. And actually only now mine! Because nothing had brought all three components together: 

 

Without the "question to oneself" of why you find some classical music beautiful but most of it not, you don't even think about how to summarize what leads to this phenomenon. For a very long time, the concept of "popular classical music" was non-existent for the vast majority of people. And if these two components ever met, Google was of no help in this regard. For only recently has there been a very questionable wiki on the term. So questionable, in fact, that another wiki editor has pointed out that this wiki is more than questionable. For this reason, there is no link to it here. 

 

And by the way, regarding my "initially strange" discovery that I found many classical pieces beautiful, but many more "suck", the following experience in retrospect: I desperately wanted to find classical music beautiful. This was especially true of the past ten years, when I "spent" a lot of time with Johann Sebastian Bach. I looked back on an exciting self-test in the year these websites were created: Again and again, in my car with my radio there, on long trips and in traffic jams, but also when watching television in the evening, I like to click through the channels. From station to station ... yes, even on the car radio. For me, it's like "opening surprise bags" used to be, or for some it's endlessly exciting to poke around at the flea market. You discover a lot of things that you would have hated to miss. On TV about history, foreign countries, contributions about stars and the environment, technology and so much more! 

 

And occasionally, you also pass by classical music, or more precisely, selected music works from the specialized classical music stations and also from niche stations, as well as from time to time from stations like ARD, ZDF, RTL (... the "big players" in Germany) and all the others. So you see and hear classical music. So ... myself. And stay. Giving "classical music, a chance". You want to find it beautiful. And quits after five minutes at the latest. Important: Classical music fans won't be able to understand this, but I'm only reaching out to them here to offer a path to classical music for their kids. I myself, to conclude, was of the firm opinion that enjoying classical music must develop in a similar way like to " like some food". Often, what you didn't like at all in childhood and shortly afterwards tastes really good much later in life. Wine, for example, vegetables and more. I and also my wife Renate ... we actually believed for decades that we still lacked "... maturity" for classical music! Today we know better. And a playlist of the 300 most popular classical hits in combination with a random generator now offers the "best of the best" when we are in the mood for it.  And otherwise there's Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift and Rihanna. 

The principle with your kids? We catch fish best with worms, your rascals gang best with strawberry cake. Not the other way round.   ✓
