Musical knowledge, experience and education

Approaching the fieldAs with so many things in music, there is no real set definition to what musical knowledge is, and if you know something that is about music, it could be classified as such, without any argument against it from our side here. Learning about music is always worth it, and building your own skill and musical knowledge is important, much more important than to care too much about what the definition of the term actually is. Everything from the physical skill to play an instrument, to sing or to compose and write music, or to perform it, all of it goes within that category of musical knowledge, seeing that it is correct. Having said that though, there are no rights and wrongs within music, only our perception, the detailed and trainable ear of the human, and what the traditionalists tell us is right.

However we can choose what to listen to, also when it comes to facts, as we can naturally discern music as a species. Some say that what we hear as music is largely determined by the culture that we grow up in and the environment that our parents bring us up in. Unfortunately so many homes today are filled with parents who have no musical interest and end up damaging their children through poor taste, never teaching them anything that they need to know, and not stressing the importance of learning music will leave you with a child that has much less opportunity than all the rest. Though depriving your children of good music they will have much less chance of a good life, the team here knows that it’s not any ones particular fault if you don’t have good music taste, but to fail to even try to provide something decent is a failure as a parent to the team here.
