As a person with a first life lived as a classical pianist, I second Harriet’s note. I would only add that my brain does not just try to analyze auditory input classified as music: it is totally impossible for me to have music as background to activities or conversations. For background acoustics, I need (and, if I may, recommend) silence.|

For me personally, being a classically trained musician, it's very hard to just listen "emotionally." My brain is constantly trying to analyze what I hear. This is even more so in an unfamiliar piece of music.
