The LA Times has an update on the use of classical music to drive off hordes of hoodlum teenagers at malls and other public gathering places. I think the use of music for this purpose has been an elegant solution to what can sometimes be a thorny problem. I too have to admit hitting the drag as a teenager (although it was in a much smaller town than LA!) and hanging out at the mall or some store or restaurant parking lot. I think I can vouch for the power of classical music causing contemporary teenagers to find a new hangout! Mixing popular music and Mozart would have driven me crazy! The success of the California program also attests to the effectiveness of using client/patient preferred music for the most effective therapy. The full news story is here.
