I agree with David and Louigi. I only can speak about experiences with  
elementary school children.
They where deeply impressed and called everything I did "professional",  
but they had no problems to draw and sing "unprofessional" theirselfs,  
after I started to draw or to sing.
They where not willing to play songs they learned with their music  
teachers. Why? Because music teachers are preaching about the quality of  
music? Classic = good, Pop = next exit purgatory?
IMO it's allowed to talk to a child, that you don't like the song it is  
listening too, if you listen to this song at the same time too, but  
preaching to children about the good, the bad and the ugly music is  

Especially arguing with such pseudo-scientific studies and similar wicked  
tricks are disgusting.
