Children probably listen to

Children probably listen to music more than before, since it is much more at hand these days. I don't know if they "listen" as some people refer to it, but most surely they "hear" it :) . In the not so distant past, listening to music was something much more intimate. I think so because it was a main source of entertainment. Now it is something secondary or extra. There are much more entertainment possibilities now.

Listening to Music

I suspect that a Bose Soundock, B&W Zeppelin, iPod etc. produce better sound than the radiograms and portable units, such as the Dansette, which were the standard in the early years of the vinyl LP. Surely some progress has been in  sound quality since then at affordable prices.

We play all manner of music

We play all manner of music for our kids and they have developed a fairly eclectic musical experience, everything from Bach to Rachmaninoff to Gilbert & Sullivan to Frank Sinatra to Harry James to George Michael to John Williams to Gershwin to Berlin to Take That!!!  Trying to encourage them to have as broad a taste as possible and to find good things in every genre.

Welcome

Hi, Ajayay

 

Perhaps you know more, but I believe Sir Alfred J Ayer (aka A J Ayer, whose letters have been discussed here extensively recently including yesterday) might agree with your last sentence. Ayer also has things to say about morality and theoretical testing, but perhaps some cannot Take That.

Searching...

Yes, Ajayay, this is a very convenient way to deal with music. If it works for you and your family, I guess it is nice for us to know.
