Especially important for children of the digital age is the ability to empathize with others, the ability to be human with respect to their own kind and to the world, nature, and the universe.
How "pop music" and "pop culture" inhibit the development of our children?
Pop music takes root in the consciousness of our children even before their birth, even when parents do everything possible to avoid it.
The primitiveness and repetition of musical constructions in the endlessly changing kaleidoscope of a video sequence is what the child most often encounters even when watching children’s productions or fairy tales.
In music videos, this is especially obvious.
Pop music now fills the air wherever a person appears. The clogging of the musical space with primitive musical vibrations hampers the development of the child’s thinking and litters his intellectual space.
Modern digital technologies exacerbate the picture: the aimless interaction with the "tablets" and smartphones of children of primary school age interfere with their spiritual and mental comprehension of the world. Children are exposed to the drugs of the digital world: "chronophages" -- time eaters.
Instead of healthy interaction with the surrounding real world, the child receives an overload of information. He or she is not able to comprehend, understand and digest an avalanche of incoherent images. Following very short pictures, the child’s consciousness does not have time to process one thought, as he is offered another, a contrasting and also intriguing one.
A picture, color, symbol, sound has long been used as a means of influencing a person’s subconscious.
The biggest problem in the " clip consciousness" is the impossibility to trace the beginning, development and outcome of the development of any thought or idea. The impossibility of combining puzzle pieces into a single picture turns a child into a helpless consumer of information.
Pop music does not contribute to the development of the thinking process in the way that classical music does. It is aggressively repetitive and simplified. Essentially, a motive, image or symbol sticks in the mind and is imposed on the child.
The physiological, hypnotic effect of such music on the consciousness of a child deprives him or her of the ability to distinguish low vibrations from high, spiritual from physiological, good from evil.

These "I can read music!" flash cards teach a beginner to differentiate, determine and memorize the position of music notes on the Grand Staff.
