How Can We Describe Ourselves through Music?

Updated: Oct 27, 2022

It's not what type of music appeals to us, but how we approach music that defines us. How would you classify yourself:

  • a person with set beliefs, based in the past?

  • a person who lives totally in the present?

  • an evolving person?

Let's reflect on our approach to music to define ourselves.

Questions to consider:

  • Do you prefer one type of music, such as classical, folk, 60s popular, electronic?

  • Are you open to listening to, singing, or playing different types of music?

  • Is there something else about music than the genre (type of music) that appeals to you?

  • Do you prefer to listen to different types of music different times of day? different times of year?

  • Do your listening preference depend upon with whom you are listening? How the music is being played/sung/orchestrated? Your mood? Your energy level? The environment?
