They think, maybe this is a more modern form of that old stuff I saw in the movies and that I did in high school. Over the last 3 years I have had the chance to work at three high schools and convert all of their old records to CD.
After the process of recording the music to my Desk Top Computer, filtering out the background noise, amplifying to increase the voice to music ratio, setting the tempo and then creating a CD, the teachers all say that the students attitude is unbelievably more positive than in years past.
The teachers feel that it is because the students see a CD player or Boom box instead of those old LP Records and the quality of sound is so much better than what they heard from the Record Player.
Now it is our job to convince adults and students that this new perception of Square Dancing is correct. I understand that everyone is not interested in using a MiniDisc, CD or Laptop but within the next five years 45 rpm records will become much more expensive to buy and less and less available.
The records you consider your favorites will be so noisy from use you won't be able to play them and new copies will not be available. Today many of us use good, up beat, pieces of music recorded on Mac Gregor, Winsor, Grenn, Kalox and Blue Star, when the grooves are torn out they will not be playable or replaceable. My feeling is that, MiniDisc and CD is not the answer. The reason this technology will not last is that unless you have a master backup copy of every Disc, you may have to re-record all of your music again when, not if, the Disc becomes scratched and worn.
The problem with plastic CDs is that they do wear out, just ask an Aerobics instructor. I have found that it takes about 20 minutes to completely restore the sound quality of a record and archive the original file. I do agree that it is time consuming but remember you only do it one time and for all practical purposes you have a permanently restored piece of Square or Round Dance Music that will never lose its quality.
They do not have the full range of Treble and Base controls on every channel. Many people record their records onto a MiniDisc then play it through the same record player and the music quality is poor to say the least. Hilton record players are not all created equal and the people at Hilton will tell you so. Seven 6.

For me it is very helpful to relate it to other things like a speed limit in life. I wonder what other metaphors you can use. Water running through a pipe seems to be another example. You can have different sizes of pipes which might relate to time signature vs flow rate, which would be tempo. I also love your discussion of Tempo marks! One hears these terms a lot, without understanding them fully. Thanks for your comment! Metaphors are an excellent way to learn especially new concepts or those that are confusing when taught in other ways.
Your example is a good one too and this lets me know you understand. Thanks again! Also, pages are available via the top navigator bar and the drop down menus. Some of the important pages are listed as links in the footer as well.
