If a person is under a lot of stress and is listening to kosher music is that considered bitul Torah? The Leviim used to sing songs at the holy bet hamikdash and they were the teachers of klal Yisroel. So if they would take time to sing instead of learning what does that show? Also it was an important aspect of the avodah in the bet hamikdash. Also Dovid Hamelech used to sing.. Whats the Ravs take on this?
It’s very important to make sure your not under stress, and if you are its a mitzvah to listen to music if it helps.
