Music has lots of power. It also can offer you so much. It soothes you, makes you happy, shares your sad mood, inspires you and also lifts you to a higher ground. It can help you anywhere, anytime and there is no limit how much it can do for you. Music can also help you to improve up in another aspect of your life- listening.
Listening is one of the most important things in communication but one of the most neglected skill. People often hear other people but they do not listen to them.
Do you listen to music or you simply hear it?
If you learn to listen to music instead of hearing it, this practice will make a habit which will benefit you in different ways. Classical music can help you because you need to really listen to classical music to understand and appreciate it. If you start listening to classical music, it will be easier for you to create the habit of listening and the same habit can be applied to any conversation that you have with any other person. That alone will improve your communication tremendously.
How to do that?
Deciding to listen
Before you can listen, you will have to make a decision to listen to the classical music being played. You will have to decide whether you are going to do something else while hearing the songs and music or just totally listen to the classical music.
Focus on what you are listening
If you want to enjoy classical music and understand it, you will have to focus on whatever is going on. If you are in a concert or if you listening to classical music on YouTube, you will have to focus on that music and then you’ll be able to understand and enjoy it completely. Without that focus, you will never understand and enjoy classical music.
Maintaining your focus
Once you had focus, it is possible that it may wander off at some point of time. Maintaining the focus of listening to the music will help you to understand and enjoy the music till the end. That will only help you to appreciate classical music the best way possible.
So let’s get started and improve our communication skills.
