A new family signed up their teenage son for lessons with me. He’s had a classical background full of of exams and evaluations. He practices an hour a day and spends twenty minutes on scales. His parents warned me that he wants to quit. At our first lesson, he plays a Bach piece. The notes are right but uninspired. I ask him what he listens to. Pop. So we learn “All of Me” by John Legend. An hour later he's playing it and sounds great. He's having a good time. The parents are totally confused. To them Bach is greater than John Legend. I ask the parents what they listen to – John Legend.
