RE: developing musicians and a musical culture

Ooh, I got this one!

do--what they consider fun.  It's like exercise--if you don't think about 
being work, you are more likely to put yourself into it.
TV and mass media definitely dosn't require enough of the viewer.  But
that's why it's taken hold so firmly.

Subject: developing musicians and a musical culture

over the years? How do we encourage our culture to -create-?
How do we knock people out of a
"spectator mentality"?
