Music has a notable effect on people, the effect being dependent upon a number of musical characteristics as well as the preferences, mindset and emotional state of the listener. It has been widely noted that music with a fast tempo causes people to speed up what they are doing, and that conversely slow tempo pieces cause people to slow down. This is very much along the principle of entrainment first noted by Christian Huggens in 1666, as with clocks people tend to fall into rhythm with their environment.
This principle is used actively within brainwave entrainment and brainwave music, though it can also be beneficial in terms of musical choices on the whole. Whereby slower tempo pieces can be used to aid with relaxation, healing and sleep amongst other things.
Indeed one of the things cited by University of Edinburgh professor Raymond A. R. MacDonald in his report titled “Music, health, and well-being: A review” is that “One of the principle reasons we listen to music is for mood regulation and in this way music can be considered an informal type of self-medicated therapy.” whilst in conclusion he goes on to state:
“While there is still much to learn about the process and outcomes of well-being-related music interventions, it is a field of practice and research that has major contributions to make in positively influencing key aspects of health. Qualitative research methods have much to contribute to this process since these approaches facilitate the exploration of the subjective and phenomenological aspects of musical experience and it is these very individual aspects of musical life that lie at the heart of why music has powerful beneficial effects upon health.”
