It means the way they grew up with it and view it.
Is it ok to play loud music in public places?
No, I’m afraid the answer is no. it is annoying and pisses me off because loud music blasts into our ears. Besides, it is a violation of people’s peace, and disturbs many people. [Crack IELTS with Rob] There is no reason to be forced to hear somebody else’s choice in music. Therefore, I strongly feel that people should be fined for playing music too loudly in public.
Do you think music can be s source of pollution?
Yes, music can be considered as a typical type of noise pollution. Sound becomes unwanted when it interferes daily routine/ activities such as sleeping, and conversation or reduces the quality of life.

When people get older, will they like the same music as they liked in childhood?
Honestly, what people listen to is chosen to suit particular milestones they face and meet social and psychological needs, getting older means getting softer in terms of music. [Crack IELTS with Rob] Teenagers have an interest in rock and metal while young adults are really into more relaxing music such as jazz and classical music when raising a family.
What can people learn from songs?
Songs can benefit us in several ways. First, it helps listeners to learn a foreign language. [Crack IELTS with Rob] People can listen to lyrics in these languages, copy the melody and remember pronunciation. Besides, through lyrics, people can enrich knowledge, broaden horizons and have out look on some issues that our society is facing.
