I really think that introducing classical music after age 12? maybe
is often a lost cause. It may simply seem like a mere novelty by then.
Though musical instruction early in life - and in the schools - can help
tremendously, just having classical music being played in the home is
SO important. I really don't believe I would listen to opera if my ears
had not become accustomed to it - thanks to my father. It was an almost
daily exposure for me. However, if I wanted to increase classical music
appreciation among youngsters, the elementary schools would be a good
place to start.
