Great music is an investment: you must apply yourself to understand
Statement One: Great music is an investment: you must apply yourself to understand and
appreciate it. Just as you’ll never gain mastery over anything without effort, you’ll never

There is a lot of meaning and emotion behind the lyrics in music and you can take them
any way you want. Music is a great way to express yourself and your feelings, for me I
listen to different genres depending on what mood I am in. I also have certain songs I like
to listen to when im sad or happy just because of what the lyrics say and I can feel the

music just because they like the beat or it sounds good they may not fully interpret what
the song means but they still appreciate it and I think that is okay. I do think listing
deeply to songs helps improve the understanding of music and everyone should have
there choosing of what music they appreciate.

paid more attention to the intonations and harmonies of the lead singer's voice
