Music Therapy

by Ruby Ardon

What is the therapeutic effect of music and how does it impact the human brain? Do different moods of music have different reactions in people, if so why?

Identities and Relationships

The focus of my personal project was to see how music impacts a person. Music affects a person based on their individual feelings and emotions. I wanted to see how music impacts the human brain and can even help a person who is struggling with mental, emotional, or even physical problems. This is known as music therapy. It is used for multiple different reasons which is what I focused my project around. From there, I demonstrated how music impacts people in different ways by filming and editing a video in which my fellow peers listened to songs I played for them.
