    Lightbulb Come here, high-schoolers! You are NOT lonely!

    Hi! I am posting this thread to look for people active on Talk Classical that are currently in middle/high school. As a peer of yours, I would really like to know what do you listen to and your thoughts on classical music! I enjoy listening to classical from a perspective of a teenager, despite my parents believe only old people like classical. Our perspectives must be different with the adults.

    If you would like to participate into this discussion and do not mind giving us a personal introduction, please tell us how old are you, where do you take school, what classical music is to your taste, what instrument do you play (if any), how did you start to like classical and what's the opinion of people around you on classical music. It can be lonely if nobody around you likes the music you love, but here is the place where you can find people with the same interest!

    I saw a recent stat on Classical FM Radio in Toronto, 88% of listeners are 45+ years of age.

    I think that says more about radio than it does about classical music.

    Well, this is a brilliant explanation... Yea, I don't even listen to radio, simply because I am not old enough to own a car.

    Although I had started piano lessons at a young age, my interest in classical music blossomed in my teenage years through playing, radio, recordings, and hearing live concerts. Also began meeting other teenage musicians and enthusiasts.

    The teenage years are uniquely valuable for anyone interested in classical music. Don't let anyone discourage you, and ...

    Good luck!

    I made my own radio from a kit when I was about 13 - not old enough to own a car, but old enough to want to listen to radio.

    Seems like there is no teenager here in this forum. So sad.

    Didn 't we once have a poll on members' age ranges? Find that poll to see how many young 'uns are on TC.

    When I was in high school (1970s) I listened to nothing but rock music. But nowadays the non-classical music seems so bad that maybe it will drive the kids to classical.

    If it makes you feel any better, I started listening to classical music in high school. Unlike many here, I'm fairly young (early 20s), so this wasn't back when dinosaurs roamed the earth. I will say, I love classical music, but it's not the best hobby as a young person if you're looking for something to talk about with your peers.

    Thanks for telling me this. Can you give me a link to the poll?

    I'm 30, that counts as high school on this site, probably, or something!

    I'm 22, probably on the younger side here.
