One of the most common statements heard as a music major is, “I wish I was exposed to Classical music earlier in life”. I was introduced to Classical voice early in life, and it made all the difference in my musical pursuits. If I were to make a living doing what I love, I would be an Opera Singer and open an Opera Company for all ages. I hope to achieve this by finishing my studies in Classical voice, and pursuing a Master’s degree in Business. Children and adults alike should have the opportunity to learn the importance of staging, precision, and singing/playing with proper technique, as well as having a panel of excellent teachers for private lessons in any instrument. There would be year-round competitions, master classes, and contests for free lessons to help engage children and their parents, and especially those who could normally afford lessons. There would be a talent based system of achievement. One big struggle for children is that they can only excel as far as they are allowed. When this happens, they are no longer challenged until they achieve an older age or the next “level”. What about the talented 12 year old who is above the average 15 year old in knowledge and skill level, or the 15 year old who discovered their passion for music, but was never been exposed to training until then? This type of exposure to classical music at young ages could bring revival to the Classical world.
