Do you like Classical Music? Classic music meaning, those of Mozart, Beethoven, Haydn, or even Bach or Rachmaninoff, Chopin etc. What do you think about this kind of music? Do you listen to it? Do you like it? What do you feel?

Old people should listen to classical music - I promised myself that when the time comes, I would be listening more of classical music as I learned that it could help prevent degenerating illnesses associated with slowing down of the mental process....I don't really dig classical music, but with that new knowledge, I guess I just have to learn to love it...
I am not really thrilled with classical music...when I listen to it, it lulls me to sleep, or worst, I switch it off in favor of other sounds. Well, just recently, we had a piano concert in school with all classical music by two renowned world artists. However, I learned from the artist that classical music actually helps improve one's intelligence because it helps the brain to make new neurons while being played. Moreover, it also helps prevent some degenerating diseases associated with old age. Simply put, old people whould be listening more to classical music to prevent Alzheimer's diseases, etc. I evern promised myself that when the time comes, I would be listening to more of classical music so as to slow down the aging process by improving the mental process....now, that would really make me change my love for music from the pop or modern ones to classical music...what do you think?

It's true that classical music can help the brain but it will only do so if you actually listen to it. If you turn on the radio and only 'hear' it while you do something else, it won't help at all. You need to really listen to it, like you would read a really good book. Otherwise the brain isn't engaged and isn't helped. It is not just nice noise.

i used to listen to a lot of classical music. it was mostly by bach, rachmaninov, beethoven and tchakovski. it was advised that pregnant women should listen to classical music especially from the baroque period coz this type of music has very advantageous effects on the baby. though listening to this type of music made me nod off a few times and made me really sleepy in the office, im am very please that it has really good effect on my baby. my little boy has a very easy temper and doesnt cry much.

I was in orchestra and concert band in high school and I loved playing classical music. Tchaikovsky and Mozart were probably my favorites. I still listen to it when I need to relax and unwind. I get a very warm and cozy feeling, sometimes very emotional depending on the piece.

a little. sometimes i choose one of them to listen. i think classical music gives us a rather tranquil and soft atmosphere that different from pop one. an awe to admire those people would stir.....really cool,actually.^0^
