TIDAL Music School Aims To Create a New Generation of Kids Who Can Identify Miles Davis & Read a Map

Do you want to expand your children’s knowledge of music and the world map? The TIDAL Music School is now accepting all students.

TIDAL Music School

This should have happened a long time ago, but better late than never. TIDAL is clearly aware that the next generation of music listeners is being educated on TikTok and that their exposure to the past 100 years of music worth listening to is rather limited.

If we are going to grow the next generation of audiophiles or consumers who care about sound quality — it’s not going to happen unless we expand their minds to a much larger world and the composers, songwriters, and musicians that came before Drake and DJ Khaled.

We also really like the emphasis on world music and teaching kids about the rest of the planet and where a lot of excellent music originated.

Our education system has failed miserably on that end and anything that helps kids locate Tel Aviv, Hong Kong, Buenos Aries, and Prague on a map is a great idea.

Songs featured in this category include “Dance The Night Away” by Van Halen, “Back In Black” by AC/DC, “All I Do” by Stevie Wonder, and more!

“While music trends change, the foundational sounds highlighted throughout these playlists will continue to shape music for years to come.
