Music should always be fun and practical. I don't shy away from scales and arpeggios but they are always taught from the perspective of immediate use in improvisation. I find the jazz syllabus of trinty and abrsm to be wide and engaging enough for most pupils to enjoy the pieces and still take the grade exams if they wish to and of course the wider range of popular to classical is also well covered.
I Always use current pop and rock songs to keep learning relevant to music currently trending.
