Can Music Really Make You a Happier Person?

How many times have you turned to music to uplift you even further in happy times, or sought the comfort of music when melancholy strikes?

Music affects us all. But only in recent times have scientists sought to explain and quantify the way music impacts us at an emotional level. Researching the links between melody and the mind indicates that listening to and playing music actually can alter how our brains, and therefore our bodies, function.

It seems that the healing power of music, over body and spirit, is only just starting to be understood, even though music therapy is not new. For many years therapists have been advocating the use of music - both listening and study - for the reduction of anxiety and stress, the relief of pain. And music has also been recommended as an aid for positive change in mood and emotional states.

Michael DeBakey, who in 1966 became the first surgeon to successfully implant an artificial heart, is on record saying: "Creating and performing music promotes self-expression and provides self-gratification while giving pleasure to others. In medicine, increasing published reports demonstrate that music has a healing effect on patients."

Doctors now believe using music therapy in hospitals and nursing homes not only makes people feel better, but also makes them heal faster. And across the nation, medical experts are beginning to apply the new revelations about music's impact on the brain to treating patients.

In one study, researcher Michael Thaut and his team detailed how victims of stroke, cerebral palsy and Parkinson's disease who worked to music took bigger, more balanced strides than those whose therapy had no accompaniment.

Other researchers have found the sound of drums may influence how bodies work. Quoted in a 2001 article in USA Today, Suzanne Hasner, chairwoman of the music therapy department at Berklee College of Music in Boston, says even those with dementia or head injuries retain musical ability.

The article reported results of an experiment in which researchers from the Mind-Body Wellness Center in Meadville, Pa., tracked 111 cancer patients who played drums for 30 minutes a day. They found strengthened immune systems and increased levels of cancer-fighting cells in many of the patients.

"Deep in our long-term memory is this rehearsed music," Hasner says. "It is processed in the emotional part of the brain, the amygdala. Here's where you remember the music played at your wedding, the music of your first love, that first dance. Such things can still be remembered even in people with progressive diseases. It can be a window, a way to reach them..."

The American Music Therapy Organization claims music therapy may allow for "emotional intimacy with families and caregivers, relaxation for the entire family, and meaningful time spent together in a positive, creative way".

Scientists have been making progress in its exploration into why music should have this effect. In 2001 Dr. Anne Blood and Robert Zatorre of McGill University in Montreal, used positron emission tomography, or PET scans, to find out if particular brain structures were stimulated by music.

In their study, Blood and Zatorre asked 10 musicians, five men and five women, to choose stirring music. The subjects were then given PET scans as they listened to four types of audio stimuli - the selected music, other music, general noise or silence. Each sequence was repeated three times in random order.

Blood said when the subjects heard the music that gave them "chills," the PET scans detected activity in the portions of the brain that are also stimulated by food and sex.

Just why humans developed such a biologically based appreciation of music is still not clear. The appreciation of food and the drive for sex evolved to help the survival of the species, but "music did not develop strictly for survival purposes," Blood told Associated Press at the time.

She also believes that because music activates the parts of the brain that make us happy, this suggests it can benefit our physical and mental well being.

This is good news for patients undergoing surgical operations who experience anxiety in anticipation of those procedures.

Polish researcher, Zbigniew Kucharski, at the Medical Academy of Warsaw, studied the effect of acoustic therapy for fear management in dental patients. During the period from October 2001 to May 2002, 38 dental patients aged between 16 and 60 years were observed. The patients received variations of acoustic therapy, a practice where music is received via headphones and also vibrators.

Dr Kucharski discovered the negative feelings decreased five-fold for patients who received 30 minutes of acoustic therapy both before and after their dental procedure. For the group that heard and felt music only prior to the operation, the fearful feelings reduced by a factor of 1.6 only.

For the last group (the control), which received acoustic therapy only during the operation, there was no change in the degree of fear felt.

A 1992 study identified music listening and relaxation instruction as an effective way to reduce pain and anxiety in women undergoing painful gynecological procedures. And other studies have proved music can reduce other 'negative' human emotions like fear, distress and depression.

Sheri Robb and a team of researchers published a report in the Journal of Music Therapy in 1992, outlining their findings that music assisted relaxation procedures (music listening, deep breathing and other exercises) effectively reduced anxiety in pediatric surgical patients on a burn unit.

"Music," says Esther Mok in the AORN Journal in February 2003, "is an easily administered, non-threatening, non-invasive, and inexpensive tool to calm preoperative anxiety."

So far, according to the same report, researchers cannot be certain why music has a calming affect on many medical patients. One school of thought believes music may reduce stress because it can help patients to relax and also lower blood pressure. Another researcher claims music allows the body's vibrations to synchronize with the rhythms of those around it. For instance, if an anxious patient with a racing heartbeat listens to slow music, his heart rate will slow down and synchronize with the music's rhythm.

Such results are still something of a mystery. The incredible ability that music has to affect and manipulate emotions and the brain is undeniable, and yet still largely inexplicable.

Aside from brain activity, the affect of music on hormone levels in the human body can also be quantified, and there is definite evidence that music can lower levels of cortisol in the body (associated with arousal and stress), and raise levels of melatonin (which can induce sleep). It can also precipitate the release of endorphins, the body's natural painkiller.

But how does music succeed in prompting emotions within us? And why are these emotions often so powerful? The simple answer is that no one knows... yet. So far we can quantify some of the emotional responses caused by music, but we cannot yet explain them. But that's OK. I don't have to understand electricity to benefit from light when I switch on a lamp when I come into a room, and I don't have to understand why music can make me feel better emotionally. It just does - our Creator made us that way.

In the art world, a lot of musical instruments found in the special, including the flute and Angklung.Pada this opportunity we will try to learn more about the angklung. Of the many kinds of bamboo, which is suitable for the manufacture of angklung is awi Wulung (black bamboo) and awi temen (white bamboo). Purwa angklung visual instrument, each note (the barrel) generated from the sound of bamboo-shaped tube wilahan (bars) of each segment of bamboo from a small size to large.
Own Angklung is a musical instrument from West Java. Angklung gubrag in Jasinga, Bogor, is one who is still alive after more than 400 years ago. Angklung created and played for the ritual of society that most of the farming life.
In addition angklung also has other functions as penggugah spirit in battle. Angklung function as pumping continues to feel the spirit of the people still come to the colonial period, that's why the Dutch East Indies government had banned the public use the angklung, the ban has had a chance to make angklung popularity declining and only played by children at that time.
The origin of the creation of bamboo music, such as angklung based view of the agrarian life of the Sundanese community with a source of life of paddy (bitter melon) as main food. This gave birth to the myth of trust against Nyai Pohaci as a symbol of Goddess Sri Padi giver of life (breathe-hurip).
Reflection Sundanese people formerly in agricultural processing (tatanen), especially in cultivating rice and has spawned the creation of poetry and song as a tribute and a gift to Sri Pohaci Nyai, and the efforts nyinglar (starting bala) to match a plant they do not invite disaster, both pest and disasters other natural. Lyrics to the song to honor Nyi Buhun Sri Pohaci the example:Furthermore, the songs are offerings to Dewi Sri, accompanied by the sound of drum accompaniment made from bamboo poles that are packed and then was born the structure of simple bamboo musical instrument we know today named angklung. Subsequent developments in the game Angklung accompanied by elements of tradition and ibing movement (dance) rhythmic (to wirahma) with patterns and rules = rules in accordance with the needs of a memorial service at the time of paddy rice paraded to the barn (ngampih pare, nginebkeun), also mitembeyan at times, began to plant rice in some places in West Java called ngaseuk.
Similarly at harvest feast and games dedicated angklung seren epidemic. Especially in the presentation ceremony Angklung associated with rice, art became a nature show or helaran pageantry, even in some places into the convoy and Dongdang Rengkong and Jampana (stretcher food) and so forth.
During its development, growing and spreading to angklung throughout Java, then to Kalimantan and Sumatra. In 1908 recorded a cultural mission from Indonesia to Thailand, among others, marked the transfer angklung and bamboo music of this game even had time to spread there.
In fact, since 1966, Udjo Ngalagena angklung figures who developed the technique based on the barrel-barrel game pelog, salendro, and madenda-start teaching how to play the angklung to the many people from various communities.

Mozart Not Make You More Clever

Likes listening to classical music of Mozart? Enjoy it, but do not expect to become more intelligent because you diligently listen. However, expect your child more intelligent by giving her musical training to be considered although the effects may still need to be investigated further.

Thus the conclusion that the research results of the German Ministry of Research released last week. This conclusion is the result of an analysis of scientific data from various literature studies linking music and intelligence. The research team consisted of nine experts from the fields of neuroscience, psychology, education, and philosophy involved to review the literature on those topics.

The German government felt it was important to fund such studies because it receives so many requests to fund research proposals that examine the relationship to music with intelligence, but difficult to assess the level of truth. "We looked at all the literature to find the gaps are still questionable," said Ralph Schumacher, a professor of philosophy at Humboldt University Berlin, Germany which is also adept at playing the piano.

The popularity of music as a driver of intelligence began to bloom since the scientific journal Nature reported the results of the research psychologist Frances Rauscher and her colleagues from the University of California, Irvine, USA, in 1993. They claim a person has increased visibility of intelligence in terms of space, such as recognizing shapes and folding paper, after listening to Mozart music for 10 minutes.

Findings known to the Mozart Effect was torn into a powerful marketing tool in the music industry and health. Unfortunately, excessive use of the exploited so difficult to distinguish between the effects of music listening to music with the practice adopted in various commercial ads. In fact, until the outstanding compilation of Mozart's music to stimulate brain development in children. So the researchers looked at all the literature to find a picture of a careful and objective.

They found that most research results on the effect of music listening to Mozart's composition, which was collected in Mozart's Requiem, to intelligence is not proven consistent or the effect is only felt no more than 20 minutes. In addition, such influence is not only found in people who practice Mozart's music, but also other music or listen to stories.

The research team also subvert the claim that music can improve intelligence training. They stated, most research results published so far are too weak and can not explain its effect in the long term.

"However, one or two substantial research and carefully managed to show a significant effect on IQ because it can show it for years," said Schumacher. However, if the effect of musical training proved, it still will not make your child a genius.
