Get the device volume

Let's say I'm on my android phone and I set the volume to 0 (silent).
Then I start my application. Inside my app, I start playing music (using MediaPlayer).
I don't want the music to start playing - but it does, even though the phone is silenced. I'm not saying that's wrong.
So what I want to do is to "get" the volume of the device (it would have to be 0 or 0.0 in this case) and set it using: audioManager.setStreamVolume().
How can I get that information?

That will raise and lower the volume by one increment, and it will operate correctly if the device has weird audio streams.
