          We all listen to music in various ways. This essay from the ever-wonderful Maria Popova of Brain Pickings introduces us to an invaluable resource for music listening that can enhance our appreciation for music and its effects on our lives. The book, Music: Ways of Listening, by Elliott Schwartz, is out of print but Maria provides an excellent summary of the work. (Amazon lists several used book outlets that have copies.)

Read…Reflect…Learn to Listen to Music Better…Share!

‘Respond esthetically to all sounds, from the hum of the refrigerator motor or the paddling of oars on a lake, to the tones of a cello or muted trumpet.’
