You come close to that again and again, like this, "a whole population that knows a little bit about music but none able to make it a profession."
What you're actually communicating is, "a whole population that knows a little bit about math but none able to make it a profession."
You have said things this again and again.
You also said before that the drastic increase in the minimum requirements for both teachers and students means NOTHING.
I note your terms "none" and "nothing" - these are universal statements that you keep making.
Again: You keep doing this all the time.
This above is you communicating that which deny you communicate.
