Different generations do have different musical tastes. In some countries, most young people tend to be less interested in classical music concerts or taking up theatrical performing arts. There are several reasons behind this trend and I believe that it is unnecessary to encourage youngsters to delve into classical music.

One of the primary reasons is that such type of music appears to be eccentric and unappealing. Famous composers, such as Bach or Mozart, tended to start their songs with a chorus, and refused to repeat it until the end. This denies people instant satisfaction but classical music lovers often say that it is worth the wait. Meanwhile, modern music tends to be simple and repetitive, and this constantly gives listeners a small dose of dopamine each time their favorite chunks are repeated. Given the catchy and arguably addictive nature of this music, it is understandable why youngsters have little desire for concerts with classical compositions. In addition, the increased media focus on rock and pop superstars aggravates the situation, making classical music managers have difficulty booking concerts for their artists. This leads to a reduction or outright cancellations of key concerts and fewer classical music programs across many countries, resulting in less opportunity for youngsters to join.

Differences in musical preference are fundamentally not a problem, and so it is not necessary to encourage young people to learn more about the genres of music they may otherwise dislike. This is because people naturally have a predilection for and associates themselves with the music that they grow up hearing. In fact, the majority of elderly people cannot stand heavy metal rock, which is currently prevailing amongst a large section of youngsters. This begs the question of why young generations, most of whom only listen to music for relaxation, should learn about the music of past generations.

In conclusion, several explanations could be given regarding the disinterest in classical music amongst young people, and I think this is a natural occurrence and they do not need to be motivated to equip themselves with knowledge about this discipline.

You wrote nearly 350 words.

The minimum is 250. You will not lose points for writing more; however, longer essays generally do not get high scores. There are many reasons.

First, the longer the essay, the more chances you have to make errors, and you will lose points for each of those errors.

Second, your writing may be repetitious and wordy. This will cost you points in task completion or coherence and cohesion.

Third, you will likely stray off-topic, and examiners will deduct points if you are not focused on the topic. You will also be tempted to use weak or unsound arguments or even contradict yourself. Develop just two or three argument points with examples.

Fourth, you will take a lot of time writing, and not have time left over to proofread your essay. You will miss the silly mistakes, and that lowers your score.


Fifth, you will not have enough time to spend on Task 1, and get a lower score there.

Aim to write around 270 words for Task 2. Practice writing a lot of essays so you get a feeling for the length.


In some countries, only few young people go to classical music concerts or plays. Why? Should they be encouraged to attend and learn more?

Different generations do have different musical tastes. In some countries, most young people tend to be less interested in classical music concerts or taking up theatrical performing arts. There are several reasons behind this trend (wrong word. A trend is something that is increasing or decreasing. There is no indication that this is the case here. Also, give the examiner a hint at the main reason.) and I believe that it is unnecessary to encourage youngsters (Not an appropriate word. In the US, a youngster is a pre-teenage child. this word is also quite informal and casual. It does not mean young adults.) to delve (That means to study it intensely. That is not the topic.) into classical music. (

Your thesis statement is not very clear. Give a precise answer to the essay prompt.
In this practice essay, there are two prompts: 1) Why? and 2) Should they be encouraged to attend?

Example thesis statement:

The main reason is that other types of music and entertainment are more appealing to young adults, and they should not be encouraged to listen to music or attend performances that they do not like.)


One of the primary reasons is that such (incorrect) this type of music appears (Don't you mean "sounds"? ) to be eccentric and unappealing. Famous composers, such as Bach or Mozart, tended to start their songs with a chorus, and refused to repeat it until the end. (I don't know what you mean - that they started and ended each piece of music with a chorus? That is certainly not the case with Bach, whose music was intricate repetitions and variations the same theme.) This denies people instant satisfaction but classical music lovers often say that it is worth the wait. (I do not understand. What are they waiting for?) Meanwhile, modern music tends to be simple and repetitive, and this constantly gives listeners a small dose of dopamine each time their favorite melodies chunks are repeated. Given the catchy and arguably addictive nature of this music, it is understandable why youngsters have little desire for concerts with classical compositions. In addition, the increased media focus on rock and pop superstars aggravates the situation, making it difficult for classical music managers to book have difficulty booking concerts for their artists. This leads to a reduction or outright cancellations of key concerts and fewer classical music programs across many countries, resulting in less opportunity for youngsters to join. (wrong word)
