Bucking the trend of sensationalist talent competitions, Majors & Minors is a symphony to the eyes and ears of families struggling to find a wholesome niche in the reality TV genre. This series does the seemingly impossible by creating a feel-good show that spotlights inspiring talent without resorting to controversy or quirky characters to keep viewers' attention. These kids will amaze you with their abilities, but even more so, you'll be amazed at the show's determination to focus on the positive aspects of creative collaboration and the infinite potential that exists in nurturing, rather than berating, natural talent.

The most obvious reason for this departure from the likes of American Idol and even America's Got Talent is that there's no elimination process, so there's little reason for competition among the participants and no reason for viewers to single out a favorite. Sure, the kids are aware that one among their ranks will walk away with a record deal, but they're so immersed in learning and being inspired that they're more than happy to work with their peers rather than against them. There's no end to the positive messages in this harmonious show that's sure to strike a chord with families.
