    I am a very hardcore fan of Koushiki ji for very long time. Was an ardent follower of her music, which has helped me to improve my voice culture a lot as a musician. Her words are absolutely correct. We should listen to high quality, different geners of music, which will help us to learn and practice them and making corrections to get maximum perfection. More we listen, more will be our knowledge of understanding the music, and getting some indepth idea of what it is.
