Could you be referring to what I. Kant made known as "a priori"?

There are things in our consciousness that are apparent, present by "a priori" which in the case of playing back music would (and if you are willing to listen to that consciousness) tell you if it sounds RIGHT --- or maybe it doesn't...

There'd be a need of 'listening development'. This knowing is present, but not right away apparent - it needs some stimulation, some effort carried by MOTIVATION.

What next comes to mind, is that if you look at a bicycle, and you watch someone ride a bicycle, and then you read lots of books on HOW to ride a bicycle - you still don't actually KNOW what it feels like to ride a bicycle. You need to have the actual conscious physical ride experience (or listening experience) in order to KNOW.

Only motivation (enough motivation) will get you there or --- maybe not, no guaranties I guess.

Lastly, if you watch the bicycle life and make a film and then watch the film and then compare the two things, you still wouldn't know what it is like to ride one...
