Model Answer:

I love to listen to music – all kinds of music – whether they are played on radio/television or played at any music club. Talking about a music club, of course, I haven’t really gone to any of them in the recent time because I have access to all kinds of music right here at my home and on my computer. However, still, I would like to talk about a place which I visit occasionally in order to listen to some great music.

The music place, I am talking about here, is actually one of the busiest and popular music cafes in the city, where I live. It is more of a live music café actually which is attended by all kinds of people. Even though the café is opened from 9 am till 11 pm, it is in the late afternoon that it starts to come to life as young people and professionals start to flock into that place in order to enjoy the lively atmosphere there. Next to the music café, there also is a beautiful lake. So, when the music is played there, people are also able to enjoy the view of the lake while also enjoying some delicious snacks and foods.

All kinds of music are played there whether they are folk songs, modern songs or western music. Sometimes, famous musical bands of my country also visit the café to play pop music at the request of the visitors and music lovers there. Anyway, I am not sure about other people, but I really like the music there because they all are considered to be some of the best songs in their respective genre.

Anyway, people really like this music place, mainly because it allows them to listen to some of the best live music, played by some of the best music bands in the country. They like this place also because it tries to make the music there more “personalized” by playing many songs at the request of the music lovers there. Finally, the opportunity to socialize with friends and other people also make it an ideal place to visit.
