Agree with the above.

Sometimes people aren't ready for the big mindblowing stuff... You can't expect someone to be excited about the 8-note dominant scale and its applications when they don't know where middle C is. Find common ground, plant a seed, but don't preach. Most people including myself have logged years of interest and research in addition to our experiences to see the world this way.

Getting passionate/preachy is usually best when the other person holds some sort of opinion already.

Unfortunately, most people are too busy working like dogs and worrying about next month's rent to give a shit about who is screwing them and from which direction.
