  MuSICA Research Notes: V I, I 2, Fall 1994
Music is widely believed to have many benefits for children beyond those within the realm of music itself.
Their conclusions are based on widespread musical skills in non-Western cultures, the strong musical abilities of western students lacking a musical education, the lack of childhood indicators of adult musical success, the thousands of hours of practice required to attain skill, and the beneficial environmental effects of early music exposure to infants and young children.
While the authors acknowledge that a child, or older music student, who is pronounced to have talent by senior musicians and music education might find this pronouncement to be motivating, others who do not receive this appellation of worth are less likely to undergo the rigors of study and endless hours of practice.

 Moby, MP3 Music Download at eMusic
Moby was one of the most controversial figures in techno music, alternately praised for bringing a face to the notoriously anonymous electronic genre, as well as being scorned by hordes of techno artists and fans for diluting and trivializing the form.
Not only did his music differ from both the cool surface textures of ambient music and the hedonistic world of house music, but so did his lifestyle; Moby was infamous for his devout, radical Christian beliefs, as well as his environmental and vegan activism.
In 1994, Moby signed a major-label contract with Elektra Records in the U.S. Everything Is Wrong, his first album released under the deal, appeared in the spring of 1995 to uniformly excellent reviews, especially in the American press, who had previously ignored him.
