When one listens to music ( i love the moffatts music ) , usually the music is played in the background while we do tasks such as work or household chores. The means we aren't actively listening to the music. Music can be a great, healing relaxer to help us escape from the various stresses of life these days. To really enjoy good music of any genre and harness these relaxing effects, we must really listen to it. If these steps are correctly followed, the result will
be a panoramic expansion of your musical experience, which may be likened to listening in color. 

Listen to genres that are new to you or that you want to understand better. Try a light opera, or perhaps a show tune, played by an orchestra or just on piano. Do not think of anything else. This is a time to listen, enjoy and relax. You are going to try to develop a mental map of the music. 

Recognize and consciously listen for repetition and variation. There is very often also something new very near the end. Locate passages that you find especially rewarding. Are these passages repetitions, variations, or new? If they are variations, can you realize what it was that was varied? 

Understand that in musical composition, there are three main technical ideas:
  • Repetition: This simply refers to whenever a passage of music is repeated; pretty straightforward.
  • Variation: When a passage of music is repeated, but with alterations made to it.
  • New Melodies: This means when a new passage of music is introduced. Also self-explanatory. Remember that obviously the introduction, or beginning of a piece, is always new.
Listen once more to the same passage. This time, pay attention to what brings the music to these passages. Listen to as many details as you can.
  • Colors
  • Balances
  • Textures of the different sounds of which music is composed.
Try to isolate specific details:
  • Rhythms, whether in the foreground or background, that seem to interact
  • Short melodic figures, either in the principal melody
  • Accompaniment.
Listen again, narrowing your focus: listen only to the bass, if there is one. Notice things in the bass that seem alive, pregnant with meaning. Notice all the details you previously noticed by switching your attention from one to the other. Notice the kinds of changes that happen at your favourite moment. Does the melody soar into an unfamiliar accent? Does a new rhythm add pungency? Does a buzz suddenly splinter into a fractured collision? 

Develop your mental map of the characters, actors and energies that combine to create music.

Sit down and have a cup of coffee or a drink of choice while listening to your music.

Have some variety in your music. As we all know, listening to the same piece or song over time can eventually get boring. Expand your musical tastes with not only different pieces, but also different composers and even different genres. 

so, what song you want to listen to right now?..i want to always listen to the song of the moffatts
