Why music? Music is ubiquitous, emotional, relaxing, engaging, stimulating, distracting, physical, ambiguous, social, communicative, universal, and mathematical; it affects behaviour, and plays a key role in identity.Music has a special power to move us and stir our emotions. Anyone who has ever wiped tears away from their eyes listening to their favourite sad song will know how powerful simple notes and chords can be.
Music can be a great pick-me-up for when you are feeling stressed. According to 2011 figures from the mental health charity Mind, nearly a third of people plugged into their music players to give them a mood boost about work, and almost one in four said that they find listening to music on the way to the workplace helps them de-stress.
