During the three weeks between the seventeenth of Tammuz and Tish'a Be'av we do not listen to music, regardless whether it is live or recorded. However, one may listen to music at a celebration that falls out during that time, like a Brit or at a Bar Mitzvah that is being celebrated on the day of the birthday itself. It is also permissible to listen to music at a celebration being made for finishing a masechet. Ashkenazim do not listen to music at all during the three weeks, even at a celebration. A Hazan may sing the prayers and one may sing his Torah learning. However aside from these types of circumstances one should refrain from singing songs that will cause him to become overly happy or excited.
