I once asked a keyboard instructor why there isn't more emphasis on classical music. She told me there's no money in it.

and.... it's not as much fun as popular music.

Sure, it's satisfying to play in a classical orchestra or string quartet, and it's a great accomplishment, but those people have little exchange with the audience and sit at rapt attention to the conductor.

People in big jazz bands/orchestras swiiiiiiing!!! The guys in rock bands have fun with the audience.

I go to the occassional opera and classical concert. What a bunch of stiffs!

sano - blues, bluegrass and swing, fingerstyle and flatpick.

grandmother was a cellist in NBC orchestra
grandpa was London String quartet
stepfather was a major tenor (aida, faust, etc)
sister worked hard all her life to be a busy soprano
cousin is a great tenor but barely supports himself.
nephew thinks he'll be the next caruso (I got news fer him).
