First by dispensing with the incorrect notion that Classical music is superior to any other kind. Now, I am not saying that all music is of equal quality. No, what I am saying is that there is good Pop, good Rock, good Blues, good Folk, good Bluegrass, good Rap, good Latin, etc., and it only requires an open and non-judgmental mind to learn about it, appreciate it, and discover good music beyond Classical.That's completely unreasonable. Many people hold the opinion that Classical Music isn't superior (or whatever word they use) than other music, and that is obviously not the case. Classical Music, no matter in terms of complexity, meaning, history or artistic accomplishments, are far superior than modern music.

So, how do we bring ourselves to enjoy the music the Average Joe listen to? Making the Average Joe love better music is the priority, then let's love good music together.
But I am also not saying that if someone only wishes to listen to Classical, that's okay too, as long as they don't think they are listening to the best music in the history of the world.
Basically, I find the idea that Classical music is superior is based on an assumption supported by a biased set of priorities and ignorance of the attributes of non-Classical music which are not present in Classical music, but nonetheless create good music.
