I think that Classical Music will always be around. the media wants you to believe that Hip Hop and Rap and Pop are the "NOW" things. Maybe they are. If you ask me, its sex sex sex. Classical and Country is more of a love tone or emotional tone.
I love all types of music. But we can't say that people don't like Classical. if they didn't Bach wouldn't still be known and Yo Yo Ma wouldn't be a classical legend. People have different opinions and people have the right to choose what to listen to.
Classical will always be around. Just like jazz is. it may not be in its prime, but its still played.
I Truly Believe that Music Preferences Vary from Person to Person. But the Idea Behind Music is to Accomplish Happiness, Education, Peace, Confidence and more. Hip hop is trending now a days and Millions Around the World Prefer hip hop, Rap, R&B above any other Music.
Music could be a good source for feeling relaxed and taking a break form all the noise around you. Gentle Music while Studying, Performing a task etc. Can make your work enjoyable and make you more efficient.
Music is a heavenly thing where Words and Rhymes together convey a huge message and have a positive impact on a persons life. Music preferences my vary from Person to Person but the truth is that Music is a wonderful Source of Peace and Happiness.
There is no point comparing hip-hop with classical music because classical music is loved and appreciated by the elderly while hip-hop is loved and appreciated worldwide mostly by the youths and the younger generation.
Hip-hop and classical music have nothing to do with each other as both are different genres of music.
Music is music
And I am not someone that's going to choose a genre of music over the other
Some people may love classical others hip hop that doesn't make one to be more better than the other
The music will do love depends on how we can connect to it
Like me at times I may be in the mood for classical other times hip hop
Every genre of music is good to me as much as I can relate to the particular song in play
