Students who are interested in a musical career (or just desire to learn about music) must understand the differences in musical genres and how different cultures influence the development of music. They must understand the origins of contemporary music and see the events that caused music to develop the way it has. They also need to gain a respect of different genres and styles of music so as not to believe that one style is less important to the overall scheme of music and musical development.
