RE: Any teens still at home? What are they listening to these days?

My 19 year old girl is in college, plays rap, pop, folk and some others in the car. But when she gets tired of the cussin', she will go back to our local classical station.

As with jedrider's kid, she played violin in a (good) youth orchestra, and the other eve, as I drove by downtown LA, returning home from a wedding in Hollywood, a text came through and it was a pic of LAPhil warming up at Disney Hall...to play Beethoven 5 and Shostakovich 5.

Proud dad, I replied, "you played violin in both of those pieces before." She made the statement a few days later, "Shostakovich isn't that hard to listen to." Turns out she has been checking other Shostakovich symphonies. So, she has an ear for classical orchestral genre, you think?

As for jazz, 60-80's pop or folk or folk rock, dunno. Marches and related music, dunno. Audiophile albums, probably no.
