“Fourteen is a sort of magic age for the development of musical tastes,”
says Daniel J. Levitin, a professor of psychology and the director of
the Laboratory for Music Perception, Cognition and Expertise at McGill
University. “Pubertal growth hormones make everything we’re
experiencing, including music, seem very important. We’re just reaching a
point in our cognitive development when we’re developing our own
tastes. And musical tastes become a badge of identity.”

When you come to a fork in the road, take it.
My newly 13 yr. old daughter has been going a metamorphosis in musical tastes over the last year. They seem to be fairly eclectic (from the Beatles and Journey to Daft Punk and bands I can only describe as neo-Heavy Metal). I suspect the newer stuff may be influenced by her friends. It will be interesting to see what 14 brings as her tastes are already all over the map.
