Learn one yourself.

How do you introduce classical music to kids?

Play it yourself. Play any form of music yourself. Learn an instrument, and make it part of the home culture. Period.

Everyone makes a fuss over how difficult it is to be a “late starter.” The truly challenged music learner is the lone starter.

Learn it and love it yourself, or else it becomes just one more version of “do as I say, not as I do.” Kids rightly suspect that.

If you want trim, physically fit kids, lose weight and get off your butt.

If you want bright kids who work hard at school, read and learn yourself.

If you want kids who like and can play music, then do it.
