The Power of Music


Nowadays it’s almost impossible to escape from music, even if we want to. It thunders out of every high-street shop, hisses horribly from other people’s stereos on public transport, and blasts out of open car windows.


Although many of us enjoy music, very few of us have any real idea of the effect music has on us. Most people assume that musical tastes are subjective- that one person will like jazz while another prefers classical. In fact, recent research in America and Australia has shown that appreciation of music is not a matter of individual taste. Certain types of music will have a particular effect on out minds and bodies, whether we like them or not. For instance, early classical music will help us feel relaxed and peaceful. Other types of classical music, such as the music of J.S.Bach and Mozart, are stimulating to the brain, encouraging curiosity and alertness. While classical music promotes loving feelings, hard rock music is particularly good example of music that makes us feel hate, jealousy, and violence.


As a result of this research, music is being used in hospitals, and doctors have found that 20 minutes of soothing music is often far more effective than tranquillizers. For example, after a recent operation, Fiona Richmond was not allowed to listen to her favourite heavy metal group. Instead, she was made to listen to gentle classical music because it was good for her.


Scientific work on the healing power of music started with planet research in the 1970s. Interestingly, many types of classical music speeded plant growth, whereas heavy metal caused plants to draw away from the speakers and die.
