You haven’t been doing this wrong. There’s no step by step method for listening to music.
So here’s step one:
Turn on the radio, or Pandora, or Spotify, or YouTube, whichever device with which you choose to listen to music. Pick a station, or your favorite band or artist. And press play.
That’s it. Don’t over-complicate things. Sit back and enjoy the music!
