Really listening

I recently overheard one of my students humming a song I thought I knew. I began to sing it and taught him a new verse. He went along with it. Days later he handed me headphones and I really listened to that song. It was a completely different tune with different lyrics. It was much better than what I knew.

How do we make sure we are really listening? How will our experiences improve because of it?
