Music moves us. Its kinetic power is the foundation of human behaviors as diverse as dance, romance, lullabies, and the military march. Despite its significance, the music-movement relationship is poorly understood. We present an empirical method for testing whether music and movement share a common structure that affords equivalent and universal emotional expressions.

"Studies show that music has a strong effect on your mood levels and emotions, and also on how you think and your general intelligence. The music you listen to can have a profound effect on your test scores and your ability to quickly process information. And if you’ve ever played an instrument, studies show that you’re already ahead of the curve. Playing an instrument is a great way to test out your creative thinking and push your brain to process information in a new way. The following infographic takes a look at the notion that whether you’re listening or playing, a little music can go a long way."

Daniel's curator insight, November 19, 2013 1:18 PM

I find this to be a very intersting piece of information.  I have seen almost everywhere that I have been looking that music education and playing music regularly is a good thing.  It has the ability to effect our emotions and mood levels and can be a very powerful thing.  It can even effect how we think.  It activates the creativity in our brain and pushes us to new heights both creatively and cognitively.  I see this as a great reason to continue my study of music in college.  I think that a music education and just music in general is a very valuable thing.  Because I have seen things like this and experienced it first hand for myself,  I will be continuing my studies into college and beyond.  This also shows me that it is great to study even if I do not plan in majoring in it because just the act of making music engages the brain.  I do not need to be a music major to do that and this has helped me to realize that the music minor program might be right for me so that I can still participate in it while getting another degree instead of focsing on music full time.
