What if modern music is foreign to me?

That is ok. Older generations said the same thing in the 1960s about the Beatles. For whatever reason, humans have a strong bias toward music they listened to as teenagers. Music education should be designed for students and therefore needs to be relevant. This means that resources, materials, and curriculum needs to be refreshed every decade or so to keep up with the trends. Learning tools like Moosiko and programs like Little Kids Rock can help infuse modern music into your existing classes and curriculum.
