Music is steadily increasing in it’s popularity throughout many different countries as new sounds and music making methods emerge everyday. The music industry today seems to be creating more experimental and complicated genres.That, coupled with the fact that new acts are being found everyday makes this an exciting time to take part in music and allows pretty much everyone to find something that appeals to them.

However, when thinking of music,  most people probably wouldn’t consider the fact that there are effects from listening to certain types of music,both physically and mentally. These effects have been studied by multiple scientists all over the world, and they have discovered the short term and long lasting effects of different music to the body. Of course, every music genre, and even each individual musical act is different in ways, which could waver effects slightly, linking to emotional and physical responses to the human body. For example, the sad music played at funerals or post-breakup, can get you to a weakened state, and cause you’re emotional stability to decline.

Another major effect of music on the human body that scientists have discovered that rhythms can yield different results from the body. The rhythm of a peculiar song can be transferred into a human’s body, and be portrayed very openly, such as following the rhythm when walking, breathing, or blinking. Music rhythms can also be found in the aspect of going along to your heartbeat, as long as it’s relatively or somewhat close to the beat of a regular heartbeat.

Music also has a very exciting effect on the human brain. Some people may think the music and the rhythm is distracting, however if you listen to certain songs that have sixty beats per minute – such as Mozart – then the process of learning and remembering a student has is five times stronger than without. This is caused by the steady flow of the sixty beats from certain songs, where the beat can open the left and right sight of the brain and help students learning and processing during education lessons.

Music has a very interesting sway over the human body, dealing with mood, pitch, hobbies, motivation, and even simple things such as the slowing of breathing and blood pressure decrease. Studies show that whoever listens or studies music has higher grade point averages than the regular student who normally doesn’t listen to music. People who listen to music also develop faster physically then those who don’t. The biggest schools and top academics for students learning abilities have a very encouraging program of joining the music industry, whether it be choir, or maybe even playing an instrument.

The wonders of music are never limited, and scientists are still exploring the effects music has on the human body today, discovering more and more that music may be more than we previously assumed.
