It would be my pleasure to provide any assistance possible for your desire to cultivate an appreciation for classical music.
I will start by referencing some classical pieces you probably are familiar with already.
Aaron Copland wrote this catchy tune which was "covered" by Emerson Lake and Palmer back in the '70s.
Here is ELP.
Here is a Symphony Orchestra.
More to follow.
What a fantastic justification for posting lots of classical music for your consideration.
