How to Listen to Music: A Vintage Guide to the 7 Essential Skills

Music has a powerful grip on our emotional brain. It can breathe new life into seemingly lifeless minds. But if there is indeed no music instinct, music — not just its creation, but also its consumption — must be an acquired skill. How, then, do we “learn” music beyond merely understanding how it works? From the wonderful vintage book Music: Ways of Listening, originally published in 1982, comes this outline of the seven essential skills of perceptive listening, which author and composer Elliott Schwartz argues have been “dulled by our built-in twentieth-century habit of tuning out” and thus need to be actively developed.

Why we need music

They talk about savings and partnerships and choice, while really they are trying to rid themselves of responsibility. If something has been outsourced, it is not the manager’s fault when it fails. In seeking to find “efficiencies,” whether in a hospital or a music school, the managers must recruit collaborators from within. You can spot these people fairly easily in music.

They are the ones who refer cheerfully to the “music business” – even the “music industry” – and who speak of “outcomes.” The trouble is that most managers have experience only of management, the bulk of our politicians have spent their whole lives in politics, and too many of our economists can do little more than count. The arts in general are how we explain ourselves to each other and to future generations. Well music is more than that. The next level involves playing and singing, improvising and composing.

What Are the Best Songs for Seduction? The Results Will Surprise You

A new study, conducted by internet-radio service Spotify and Dr. Daniel Müllensiefen, a director of the University of London’s program in “Music, Mind, and Brain,” reveals that sexy song choices do make a difference. The survey, which asked 2,000 Brits about their soundtrack preferences, found that nearly half of respondents are more aroused by music than by touch.

It turns out your best bet is “Dirty Dancing — Anything from the soundtrack.” We’ll admit it’s pretty sweet that people want to convince their partners that they can be like Baby and Johnny—but that doesn’t explain the rest of the answers.
