I'm a bit sad that ds1 now thinks rock music is far superior to classical....

And that it's surely harder to play hmm

I wouldn't agree with it being superior.
but the lad has taste.

Of course he does. Kids are meant to think like this!

I had such hopes for a classical musician....

KerryMum Mon 25-Aug-08 18:45:51

and I do love led zepplin but if I have to listen to the Immigrant Song one more time at full volume my head is going to explode.

Oh, c'mon, stuff like Kashmir is up there with any classical toon.

I don't like a lot of classical stuff.

I prefer folk/traditional.

Thankfully, so do the girls at present.

I prefer rock music as well, don't get me wrong.

I just thought it would be nice to have a classical musician in the family. sad

Why, KM? Why a classical one as opposed to some other sort.

Rock musicians can also make a lot of money .

I don't know, it just seemed good to me to have a background in classical music first.

Yes, you do have a point about the money. I'd say he'll be quite a babe magnet (but I am seeing through mummy eyes so who knows)

I agree with your ds1.
Make sure he plays guitar.
Chicks dig the lead guitarist.

expatinscotland Tue 26-Aug-08 16:41:21

Chicks don't dig classical musicians, many of whom are paupers or self-employed with a shaky income.

I mean, how many classical musicians do you see on 'Cribs'?

FabioTheFlouncingCat Tue 26-Aug-08 16:42:54

Pimp my cello.
Never gonna happen.

ds1 won't come out of his room until he cracks Mozart's Oboe Concerto in C minor
