Music has a way of reaching us emotionally. You may have been guilty of playing sad music after a breakup. It’s the music in horror movies that really build the suspense and fear! Why do mothers sing their babies to soothe them or put them to sleep? Why do people pay hundreds of dollars to attend a concert? Because music has the power to influence us! Research has shown that music helps the development of children and young people1. Music also affects the moods of adults which in turn influence the activities they engage in, their morale and enthusiasm. “It is no secret that music elicits ‘happiness’ or ‘positive effect,” says Professor Marcel Zentner, a Professor of Psychology at the University of Innsbruck, Austria.
