When doing fieldwork, musician and researcher, Juhász Zoltán, always asks his informants how and when they learned to play. Inevitably, the answer is always that the person grew up in a household surrounded by music and musicians. Also that a musician doesn't play a tune until he knows it from beginning to end in his head first. Zoltán recommends that the traditional way of learning music shouldn't be overlooked as possibly the most effective mode of passing on music to our children. by Juhász Zoltán
