One of the wonderful things about living in these days and times is the amazing availability of music of all genres. And, using a device like Roku to attach to your flat screen television and sound system, along with a music streaming site like Pandora, you can stream music easily into any room of your home. Some may prefer to utilize a desktop computer or laptop. With the simple attachment of a speaker system you are ready to go.
So, what to do with all that musical power available to you? Open your musical horizons! Check out a few genres that you haven’t really paid attention to before. Try a few different sounds for different beats than you typically listen to. Remember when you thought jazz was lame or classical was for old folks? Maybe it would be nice to give it another listen. You might be surprised to find you have an ear for a few new things.
Music is such a delight but all too often we get into the habit of strictly listening to “popular” channels. The younger members of the family can be especially prone to this. It’s very normal of course! But, if your family hears classical choices regularly — perhaps you make it a point to play classical selections while you sit at the dining table together for the evening meal — they will have exposure and probably an appreciation for it. Explore a little, try some Caribbean beats or Techno tunes while cleaning the house this coming weekend, you just might find yourself enjoying something new!
