1. Nowadays wr can hcnr music almost everywhere: in the street, in shops, in public transport, in parks, etc. That is because more and more sound producing device» are available, such as mp3 players, telephones with mp3 players, portable stereo CD-recorder». And if the music played is pleasant for the ears, then it's always welcome in any place.
2. Absolutely right! Tastes differ and they are personal. Of course, some people, even in a class, may love the same genres and trends, but a personal attitude to music is doubtless!
3. Absolut* truth! This point is close to the sixth one as when music is nice it can give us strength and encourage us to do something, to act efficiently. But when music is too loud or unpleasant, it can give us headaches, stomach aches, and simply be a real nuisance.
4. That is correct. We like what attracts us because of different reasons. Even when we hear some piece of music for the first time, we can Qdl in love with it for it ap|ieals to us by its melody, words or both!
5. Truth it is! Music has a healing effect and many people know that. Even when you are at home feeling sad, you can listen to some wonderful pieces and get better in mood. Many hospitals all over the world use music to play in the wards or halls of the building to help people recover.
6. Certainly, that is without doubt. Our ears are affccted harmfully by the sounds that exreed 80-8!» deciliels. for instance, busy traffic sounds. Many types of music are played over the safe limit of 85 decibels and lots of people, especially teenagers, listen to this music for a very long time. Be careful!

Last year I and my friends were in Crimea in mid-May mid enjoyed our trip very much! The weather was wonderful, weather in the sen refreshing, but most of nil we liked the jazz festival that was held in the suburbs of Feodocia. There were about thirty singers, guitarists, drum-players and other musicians that played brilliantly, though jazz music is not simple. Every day the concert began in the evening around 8 p.m. Many fantastic jazz men articipntcd in the concert, most of them played every day short pieces. Several artists not only played, but danced, and made some sort of sketch show on the scene, which was very exciting! The stage design was very simple, no pasters, no extraordinary lighting, no special effects — I guess that was because people in jazz didn't like anything artificial, they play what they feel and like.
Although the sound, the songs, the guitar solos and drum players were very good, the most spectacular performance was by a trumpet player Saskia Laroo from the Netherlands. She was dressed like some fairy, her appearance was very attractive, her voice enchanted and spelled the audience! I didn't remember the titles of her pieces, but it didn't matter. After the concert was over and we returned back home. I surfed Internet, found her works and downloaded them. But in fact, I don't know if I would like Laroo's pieces of music unless I saw her brilliant live performance. Now. every time I hear her music I automatically imagine Laroo on the stage, holding the mic and spreading her spell on me.
