IT'S NOT JUST ROCK THAT'S BEING STRANGLED: Interesting piece on LudwigVanWeb about Classical Music, and how the way it's presented to young people is choking the life out of it. There's some interesting parallels with rock music, and conclusions could be drawn about why it might be wrong to have centrally-funded courses training musicians to play, rather than to support themselves while they play.
Young musicians are note-factories, says LudwigVanWeb - at least they don't have to have nice bums as well...
