Is your child the next Mozart?

With the ease of technology as it approves on the net, the options of content creation has become one that is easily accessible by kids. Yes, you heard right, kids are making video and posting it on the web. Sites like YouTube are giving kids the opportunity to express themselves in ways that are now turning them from passive spectators to captains of there own internet destiny, giving them the opportunity to hone their multimedia skills and join the world that is thriving around them.

There are at least 2 million kids who surf the Internet on a daily basis and 9% of those children are between the ages of nine to twelve. This portion of users are also webmasters creating original content that is both entertaining and relevant to their world, but also significant to the web in general. With 33% of that particular demographic planning to launch their own websites, this number of technologically creative kids is going to increase dramatically. Software providers and multimedia site companies have sensed this wonderful trend and are making themselves available to assist in this explosion of experience and learning.

One facet of this impressive kid-generated content contribution is music that can be uploaded online and broadcast to the world, letting the internet experience the true talent of your composing child. This is the perfect time to take advantage of this technological opportunity and allow your child to flower their creative ideas. Why now? Well Mozart began composing his timeless and beautiful works at the age of five! Well we’re way past the age of the clavier but there are computer-based avenues of content creation that are available to you child that can give them the head start in the creative world and give them the satisfaction, experience, knowledge and confidence that will set them apart, allowing them to join society as socially aware and responsible internet citizens.

Fleximusic, a reputable software developing company has heard the call of kid generated composition and audio. They have provided a wonderful new product called ‘FlexiMusic Kids Composer to assist your child in creating their first symphony of fun. With FlexiMusic, your child can learn the fundamentals of music and grow on that experience by making their own compositions and recording the result in music files that can be easily uploaded and streaming from the Internet, allowing your child to musically express themselves to the world. This content can be shared with other children, creating a network of creativity hitherto unknown to the youthful population.

Now if you can learn how to podcast, the entire world can hear your child play. How would Mozart’s father have promoted his prodigy today?

He’d be all over podcast world, and he’d probably set up a membership site to develop a fan base who’d beg for his son’s newest composition, which they would get via his sites’ RSS feed.

  1. I hate to bring a negative viewpoint to this but a child with Mozarts talent is a rare thing and if we take adults as an example; the charts are flooded with almost talentless artists and the true talented artists, with the capability to produce something like Mozart, are overlooked and ignored, most end up composing film scores, and no-one but big fans know their names. Can you imagine how hard it is already to find the children with that talent. Then imagine if 50% of all children started posting their music online. If their parents were blindly convinced of their talent, which they probably dont have. The search for the best would become impossible. Do you understand my viewpoint?

  2. I love your point. Only if 50% of all kids WOULD even try to post something. At the very least the feedback, or lack of it, would educate their parents as to the reality of their talent. The point I’m hovering around is this:
    throw out the “charts”. Throw out the “hits” culture we’ve grown up with. Talent is overlooked and ignored is because they are not literate in the creation of an audience. The opportunities for exposure to an audience way down the long tail are limitless.
    Someone can develop an audience of raving fans only a few thousand strong, even with marginal talent.
    If they consistently produce art for even a few who’ve subscribed to their “channel” then they have the ability to engage in a limitless recital without the pressure of having to sell anything.
    A podcast that gets only 200 downloads for a marginal musician is still a thrill to the creator, especially if the range of downloaders includes 43 different countries.
    The risk of being flooded by too much talent is going away with the demise of “interuption marketing”. We only need to vet through the talent that we discover on our own, or that which is virally forwarded to us.

    Make sense?

  3. Yeah I can understand that. I don’t know if you looked at my blog, but I am a musician myself and I am struggling to create my own masterpiece, so to speak, and the scary thing for me is that most of my heroes are unknown to the majority of the world. I guess I just don’t want more of an uphill struggle than I already face. Of course I’d love kids to get involved in music and to write stuff, and I’d love them to have their parents support. I only had a small bit of support from my parents, mostly finacial, and the nightly “Shut up!” but music, for me, is a timeless beautiful thing, and I think everyone should give it a go. I just don’t want to have to hear a thousand awful pieces to find one mediocre or good piece. Then we face the problem that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, so what I like, you might hate. Its a difficult question. Site like youtube I tend to avoid unless I have something exact to search for, because I feel the amount of garbage on that site is so high. Myspace on the other hand, with its artist profiles, are a good way to present yourself.

    Do you understand where I’m coming from, I’m not the best at making points in the world, so I hope I’m getting across.
