Q: I really like contemporary Christian music, but I spent a couple of weeks with my aunt this summer and she really came down on me and said I shouldn’t be listening to such “noise” (I’m 16). I wonder what you think. — K.M.
A: Music has been an important part of human culture for tens of thousands of years. Taste in music is very personal, and you should seek out and listen to the type of music that brings you the most enjoyment. I would urge you to not pay heed to anyone’s (friends or family) criticism of your musical tastes.
