Appeasing the generation of auto-tune and extreme ignorance.

I was riled when I first read this.

I took some time to cool down but it didn't get better.

None of these f#cking morons would even be able to communicate with each other if it wasn't for the enlightenment, the renaissance.

These fools are spiralling mankind into a pit of despair.

I feel for those under the age of 18 these days. I think we can start calling them the " Lost Generation ".

They ARE THE ONES promoting and upholding this crap .
Don't feel bad for a bunch of self-made witless losers....
And their parents , that brought them up , are worse.

Preach brother.

I'm sick of hearing about these patronizing #z that put people into a box based on ethnicity.

It's wrong and should be stamped out.

We all have brains. The education system should be training everyone to use them.

Instead they choose to embrace cancel culture and general stupidity.

Sheet music represents “white supremacy” LOL?!?!!???

William Grant Still, Scott Joplin, Margaret Bonds, Duke Ellington, Francis Johnson, Langston Hughes, and Julia Perry must be all about “white supremacy” LOL

OR are their sheet music copies safe??

This is utter nonsense

The stupid discussed in the op just sucked the words right outta me for a bit there. Kinda came outta left field. I didn't even realize enough people cared about classical music these days for it to fall under the cancel hammer.

Then there's the actual musical notation itself is racist part...that's when my brain just stopped being able to process the stupid.

I just can't quite fathom how they worked that one out.

This is why other countries purge subversive, destructive cultists from positions of influence as quick as possible.

It's got to be Pro-League Gaslighting, seriously.

I mean, how can anyone with an inch of sanity think this is normal?

Then just suck it up because this is 2021 and we're so progressive and inclusive.

Suck my balls you Nazi social engineering goose steppers.

Eventually, enough will be enough.

No worries. Instead of learning to read/write standard notation, they can replace it with Fruity Loops piano rolls. They can have a whole course designed to teach sampling and looping. Hooray for progress!

That won't last long.

Talent is still required to make a decent composition.

Probably because certain powers are using it as a playbook.

From the link in the OP: "musical skills should no longer be compulsory". Don't waste your time and money at this university.

This is just about asinine as it's possible to get.

Beware underestimating the power of stupidity.

Someone will take it as a challenge.

Damn. I can’t ii V I now because Roman numerals are racist. And I gotta burn my real book because I’m privilaged enough as it is. Do I have to delete my aebersold tracks, or since were both white we cancel each other out and it’s just music? Please, I can’t appear racist at the open mic tonight.


If they want my II V I, they will have to pry it from my cold dead hands. If God didn't want us to have it, Coletrain would never have been born.

Well I'm not going to debate you about the complexities of electronic music but please don't categorise these auto-tune noobs with talented producers.

Electronic music isn't the problem here.

Lazy ass "artists" and the culture that surrounds them is the problem.

Add a bit of cancel culture in to the mix and here we are.

Beat boxing will save the Universities millions.
Everyone knows hip hop is the very pinnacle of western culture.
Your kids can major in Public Enemy and NWA studies and become so enlightened.
Maybe Aerosmith will get a mention for Walk this way with Run DMC, who knows?
Were I a child serious about music it's obvious these institutions have zippo to offer.
