I, as many young people of my age, was grown up with rock music. During my puberty, I took it further with any genre of metal. However, since I started using Spotify 5 years ago my music taste has clearly changed. Yet, I wonder if music taste can easily be changed or is it bound to DNA?
I'm a bit lazy and the advances of Spotify is having easy access to any kind of music. Multiple playlists that can be started with a single click. Instead of searching for new artists, I just wanted music to cover the silence of my room.
I've ever since listened to more and more dance, pop and house music that I'm starting to generate a preference for these genres. Do note, I still like (and love, even a bit less though) metal music.
Sure growing up affects our preferences, including music genres. But my experience could tell that listening a specific genre for a long time might turn out liking that.
That's why, again, I'm asking whether music taste is written in DNA or can it easily be changed?
