THE INFLUENCE OF MUSIC AND MUSIC VIDEOS 

No. 40 Updated July 2004

Singing and music have always played an important role in learning and the communication of culture. Children learn from the role models what they see and hear. For many years, some children's television has very effectively used the combination of words, music and fast-paced animation to achieve learning.

Most parents are concerned about what their young children see and hear, but as children grow older, parents pay less attention to the music and videos that hold their children's interest.

The sharing of musical tastes between generations in a family can be a pleasurable experience. Music also is often a major part of a teenager's separate world. It is quite common for teenagers to get pleasure from keeping adults out and causing adults some distress.

Ms. Grunina had a wonderful experience teaching guitar, theory and ear-training at the Queens School of Music, New York and Long Island Conservatory of Music, New York where she gained a reputation of a caring and serious musician and pedagogue among her students and their parents and among her colleagues-musicians.

 

Guitar Lessons by Alina Grunina

“I believe that being a teacher is a great responsibility because children learn from us how to behave, how to act, how to treat other people.  It’s extremely important for us-adults be good role models for the younger generation.”
