Too much Classical music training has to do with music of a past long obscured by printed scores subject to visual analysis.  Not enough binds music of the past closely to music of the here and now.  As I say that I realize how skeptical I am of attempts to theorize modern pop music....
It is a real question: What will composers make of the music of the here and now?  Just how would you describe that music?  
For me most of it is organized sound that I would rather tune out than listen to.
