How music affects teens?

Music is an object for various discussions of scientists (psychologists in particular). It can easily be called a phenomenon, which is not studied enough yet. The same music can affect different people in various manner, depending on our mood, our life events and so on. So, in this article we’d like to study the way music affects teens – people, who are likely to be the most active listeners ever.

According to different scientific researches, the style of music, while talking about its influence on people, matters a lot. For example, we can bring to you, as a result, a rap music. Mostly it consists of the lyrics, related to some ‘18+’ subjects, like drugs, sex and money. Another direction is rock music, which has another audience of listeners, who lead different life from the rap-fans. The researchers claim that each of these two groups has its own values, aims, tools for their achieving. However, it doesn’t mean, that such people (from the other groups) can’t be similar.

The influence of music is determined with various factors. The actual style of the artist, his lyrics and conceptions matters as well.  In order to realize, what is the impact of the particular music, listened by your child, you should listen to it and realize it. But you shouldn’t worry much while this – any music taste can be changed with time. Don’t prohibit listening to some kind of music to your child – it can make it even more valuable for him or her. It’s better to just try offering some new genres and artists – maybe your child will like them.

Music as a key to success

Many successful people, who work in various fields (like business, politics, social life) have one certain thing in common. Many of them learned playing music. For example, Bruce Kovner, a world-famous billionaire, is actually a pianist. Condoleezza Rice has also had some classes in piano. Alan Greenspan, the chairman of the Federal Reserve (actually, the former chairman), was also a professional clarinet player. Is it a simple coincidence? Or the successful people can thank their musical classes for their success? The scientists think, that this question is far more difficult to answer, then we thought.

Playing music has many benefits, which we don’t think about. For example, it can teach us creativity and original thinking; it teaches us concentration and perseverance, – the qualities, that are necessary in any kind of job. They are, actually, the cornerstone for success in any field. And those, who have them, are more likely to achieve some great results.

If you ask the musicians about their success, they tell you, that music is an answer. Paul Allen, for example, claims that the music transforms our confidence and aims it on creating some new things. Some of those, who learn some musical instruments, also call the music as a new language, which is available for a wide range of people.

Of course, the only playing music will not bring you on top of the field you work in. It’s, probably, the key to some useful qualities of your mind and your skills, which are needed for achieving anything. Mastering them increases your chances for success.

 

Listening to music improves your health

Probably, the majority of us prefers listening to music when we are sad or have nothing to do or feel depressed. Our conscious feels better when listening to our favorite music. Scientists claim, that there are some biological reasons for this. Check it out – the ways music improves our health.

It’s worth mentioning, that music influences our nervous system – that’s the way it makes an impact. Consequently, this influence results in increasing or decreasing the heartbeat and the blood pressure, according to the rhythm of music you listen to. For example, some slow music can make us relaxed and calm; and some fast music can do the opposite – mobilize our energy and power, in order to bring us to some actions. So, if you feel depressed, you should listen some funny, fast music, which would change your mood to the opposite.

Some practical evidence of the positive impact of music on our health was got in the process of several medical experiments. They were based on the comparison between music therapy and its absence, while curing the patients. The results have shown, that patients, who were listening to music, became much better, than their ‘colleagues’, who didn’t listen to the music regularly.

Based on this kind of researches, we can make some conclusions about our health. For example, if you feel really depressed or angry, and you need to improve your mood – listen to the best music you’ve ever heard. You’ll become much better, really.
