Absolutely, we should worry about those students! With a little effort on my part, that same child may one day become the lead saxophone player in our extra-curricular jazz band. That's a pretty big deal at the small school where I teach. If I help this child to see an instrument's looks are of little importance, then that child may well be on his/her way to learning a great deal more wonderful things about the world of music. I am not suggesting we spend ALL of our instructional time trying to change a child's opinion about which instrument is good or bad and why. If it seemed so in my previous response, I apologize. But why not spend a little extra time talking with a child after school about this subject? It may just open the mind of one of those "90s" kids to a whole new, exciting, and lifelong experience!
