Classical music is dying… and that’s a good thing!

September 8, 2016

ClassicalSome may say that classical music is outdated and because of that, young people aren’t interested. But that contradicts everything I have seen in my profession and everyone I’ve talked to who works closely with students, both in and out of the music industry. Having had the opportunity to meet and teach children of all ages and from all backgrounds, from very small towns lacking music programs in schools to wealthy areas with plenty of arts funding, I have yet to meet a single one who was not genuinely interested in classical music when you discard all of the artificial, “classical” rules that usually accompany it. Thankfully, this “classical” classical music of the 20th century is dying.

Let me know what you think of this point of view in the comments section below.

Guitaronomics: The Rising Cost of Tonewood – presented by Mike Overly

August 11, 2016

ToneWoodReserves of tonewood staples once considered inexhaustible – like mahogany, rosewood and maple – continue to diminish and market prices for these commodities continue to soar.

There are builders out there taking great care to make timeless instruments. This is what creates the demand for wood and leads to large scale harvesting. As the value of this wood increases, so too will the value of the instruments built from them.

But, it’s hard to shake the feeling that a change is in the air. The wood combinations of yesterday will inevitably give way to substitute woods or composites.

So enjoy the guitar you have today. It is a time capsule of the way guitars used to be made.
