    I often listen to rock. I sometimes listen to rock music for use of instruments because I belong to light sound circle. I play rock in my group band and I do not focus on playing the guitar only to watch score. So I need to memorize the score with listening to rock actually. Of course, I listen to it for lyrics when a mood dose not rise in my mind. The rock music becomes indispensable in my life after all.

    I love music. Especially, I like western music. My favorite band is the Beatles. They are very famous and popular all over the world, though they have already broken up. I listen to their music because the words of songs are very impression for me and I come to feel comfortable when I listen to music. For example, when I fall into my mistake, I always listen to ‘ let it be’. I think this song says that you fully did your best. You had better let you be. After listening this song, I become composed. Music is very great power. So my mind is changed by listening to music.

  5. 2-B Yuya Kurihara #22 says:

    I listen to various kinds of music. For example, hip hop, rock, J-pop, western music and so on. Above all, I like especially Western music. I began to hear it is recent, but was very attracted. Rhythm and melody of the Western music is unique. Pitch and sense are also great. And, because there is an accent that clearly is in English, word is likely to remain in the ear. So melody is also abundant. Even when the mood depressed, western music’s powerful voice motivates me. More than anything, western music will be a good opportunity to get familiar with English. So from now on, I want to listen to a lot of Western music.

  7. Kento Suzuki #11 says:

    I like to listen to rock music. I think we can experience the real pleasure of rock music at concerts. Spectators shout for joy and that makes me excited. The shout seems to be an element of music. Compared to Japanese music, I prefer to listen to western music. If the language which is used in a song is not familiar to me, it is possible that the song becomes my favorite one, because I think melodies and moods are more important than lyrics.

Mr.Inaba of the vocal attracts me by a powerful singing voice. I always listen to vocal.

  10. Nae Numata says:

    I cant choice my favorite music from a lot of kinds of music because I think all kinds of music make me feel better at each different situations. For example, when I wanna make myself cheer up, I listen to hiphop music because hiphop music usually has fast tempo and its atmosphere is not gloomy. When I wanna to relax, I listen to reggae music. Reggae music has slow tempo. Maybe my favorite music is different to depending on my feeling.
    I may listen to music for rough atmosphere especially when I listen to foreign music. Because, though I listen to one song many times, I dont understand the meaning of the song. For example,one day I listend to ane music and thought that ” I like this song. This is my favorite song!” But I examined the meaning of the word later and I found that the song was song for something bad. I didn’t want to believe my sensibility… Then maybe I usually listen to music for rough atmosphere.

  11. Kana Aoike No.7 says:

    I like to listen to classical music. I can settle down very much if I listen to classical music. My favorite is the music of Mozart and Chopin. I think that their musics have a graceful and delicate tone and profound feeling. One music of theirs is altogether different, but I think that their musics are loved by people in the world. Although I am not the same race as them either, I love their music. So there is a charm to attract people in their musics, for example, tone, melody and rhythm.

  12. Gaiya Kajino 10 says:

    I often listen to many kinds of music. I especially listen to rock. When I don’t feel like going to school in the morning, I listen to rock and increase my motivation. I’m really into listening T.Rex now. My favorite songs are “Get It On” and “20th Century Boy” in their songs. I listen to music for vocals and rhythms. When I listen to music, I’m curious as to back chorus. If back chorus matches main vocal, I feel good when I listen to music. Besides, if I feel happy, I will want to listen to up-tempo music. If I feel sad, I will want to listen slow-tempo music. So, music is an indispensable thing for my life.

    I often listen to country music. I recently listen to music of Taylor Swift. She is very cute and influential voice. There are two reasons for this. Firstly, country music has warm tone. I think the rhythm of the country music is very comfortable. When I tired, it makes me happy. Secondly, country music has characteristic lyrics. I think that the country music’s lyrics are like a story. When I listen to country music, I consider the meaning and situation of lyrics. It is very interesting. So, I want to know a lot of country music.

    I like listen to music. I often listen to Western music. Especially, R&B and pops are very cool. Music is one of the necessaries of my life. I always listen to music when I go to school and my free times. Sometimes, I share such kind of music with friends by singing and dancing. I think R&B and pops are suitable for such situations. Andmore, such music makes me happy, refreshing and excited. When I search for the nice music, firstly I listen to it for rhythms and melody. If I like these points, secondly, I check that lyrics. Sometimes, that lyrics disappointed me. For example, a song of heavy broken heart. But mostly I like music more by seeing that lyrics. My favorite singer is Bruno Mars. “Treasure” and “The lazy song” are very nice.

    I often listen various music every day. But I don’t know about foreign song.So almost of music I listen is J pop. But I don’t hate foreign music. I don’t understand their lyrics, but I want to listen songs sung in English to learn. Many of foreigner music I have is latin jazz. I can’t learn foreign language from them because they have few lyrics. But jazz music relaxes my mind, so I like to listen to this kind. Especially, I often listen to jazz when I am studying or reading. I am easily distracted, however, it calms me down very much.

  24. Momoka Sakaino #24 says:

    I like classical music. My favorite composer is Rachmaninoff. There are The symphony No. 2 and the piano concerto No. 2 in his works. These music is used also for CM or a movie and is very famous. I belong to the orchestra club. In order to practice a performance, when listening to music, I am concentrated on the tone and rhythm of musical instruments. Moreover, classical music heightens concentration. For example, when you study, if classical music is listened to, it will progress from usual. Moreover, there is a healing effect in classical music. There are various kinds in classical music and a style completely changes with composers. Moreover, since how to hear the same music by a player is different, I enjoy listening to classical music.
