"Youth classics is an amazing project – it breaks down the barriers between different age groups that are otherwise held in place by formal music education institutions. We often talk about learning from older and more experienced people, but rarely we realize how much our interactions with younger people shape our understanding of our own past (musical) development; only after understanding our past can we truly shape our future path and this is precisely what I experienced in the exhilarating ten days past July."
