    Re: correct the sentance

    The second one is incorrect. The verb is "listen to". As an alternative, what about?

    Listening to music doesn't interest me all that much. I'd much rather watch TV.

    Re: correct the sentance

    listen music and listening music are both incorrect. The correct form is listen(ing) to music. "to" stands for towards. Your hearing is directed towards a sound.
