Everything that is around us has a rhythm whether it is very small or very big and over-exaggerated. Rhythm can alter how we see or mentally picture someone or something. The body picks up the rhythm and turns it into pulses that flow into the body. These pulses that flow through the body cross over small spaces called synapses. When they jump across, they keep the same rhythm that they have had. Everything boils down to the rhythm, whether it is listening to a song or building a house.

Unnatural rhythm exists all over the world, and can harm the listener. It can be addictive to the user and can make them cause harm to themselves and other people. People will then not be able to revert back to listening to beneficial music and continue with the music that hurts them. The users will experience a decrease in their work ethic and an increase in mistakes in their work. This also comes with a decrease in their decision making ability and less respect of laws/authority.

Music affects most areas of the brain, but one specific one is where our motor skills come from. A couple tests were given involving music and the motor skills. The first test involved the active participation of unmusically inclined people. They test their skills before and after the practice sessions and the final results have shown that they were able to perform the same test quicker and easier than in the start.

Music of certain beats activates the right side of the brain while studying activates the left side. While doing this, the brain learns more and is able to hold more information without forgetting anything. This was tested on students and the results have shown that even after a period of time, they did not forget what they have learned.

Science has proven that listening to music can sway emotions, but it also stimulates the brain while studying. When you listen to music while studying, it uses both sides of the brain and makes it retain more. Also, listening to music that has a tie to memories can almost instantaneously affect one's emotions by bringing up a range of different feelings.

Music is used for many different things that involve the brain. Everybody has had a bad day and just want to forget about it, but music is able to change all of that. Music can alert the mind, calm the body down, improve learning abilities, and can make you feel more confident about yourself.

Alzheimer and Dementia patients have been tested with music. Through the soothing notes, they were about to recall more information and slow down the effects of their disease. Music has also been used to help with learning. If someone is stuck on trying to memorize a list, they can put it to a catchy toon and soon, they will memorize it a lot faster.

If someone is hurt or has something wrong with them, the doctors have the option of recommending music therapy to the patients. Music is able to act as a pain killer and make the patient forget about them pain. other than that, the chemicals that are released in the brain after listening to music actually speeds up the healing process.

It has been tested that children being tested with music has shown differences. Those who have been taught with music has shown improvements in how well they remember and pay attention. Even when they are older, they still show the improvements in those categories and some new ones, including motor and auditory skills.
Micah Lewis's comment, March 11, 2013 8:04 AM
Since we have discovered that music can help children in many categories, they are now looking to use this information in trying to help children who are at risk of failing or starting to struggle in school. In this haste, they created the Fast Forward Language and Reading products to help these children. After the use of this, most children have show improvements in their score and had higher in school, including math.
