First off I’ll just start by giving you a rough idea of what it really means to have an “ear for music”. Most musicians, music educators, or anyone involved with the music industry will all have different definitions of what it means. I think it boils down to 2 things: 1. being able to hear accurately and understanding what you’re listening to. 2. Being able to hear details and sounds most people might not even notice and understand why artists, producers, and engineers make the choice they do in regards to writing, producing, or playing music. Some music is just universally bad and I think everyone knows when they hear some terrible music. With that being said, I honestly don’t believe that having an “ear for music” is this rare mystical thing that only a handful of people possess. Everyone has their own unique taste and style of music they enjoy listening to. And guess what? That’s perfectly fine. It’s what you choose to do with that ear that will separate you from the rest of the pack.
