get into / be into

One of my students said in class 'I got into Jazz music now'

What she wanted to say was 'I am into Jazz music now / at the moment'

To 'get into' expresses a change over time from not liking something to liking it...

'Last year I got into cooking' means before last year you didn't like cooking, but now you do, so...

'Now I am (really) into cooking'

We use 'be into' with 'now' or 'at the moment'

'I am (really) into going to the gym at the moment'

We use 'get into' a lot with 'last...' or 'recently'

'I got into painting very recently'

Hope this helps :)
