For as long as mankind has walked on this earth, music has been an important part of our culture and lifestyles. Each walk of life beats to a different drum. Different cultures use music for many aspects of their lives; for religious purposes, for celebrations, for comfort, for sorrow, for relaxation, for sports, for dances, for energy, for learning, for sleeping, and for sexual experiences. Everyone uses music for something. Music connects with people and reaches them in ways that words simply cannot. Music is a representation of what feelings sound like.

It has been many centuries since the early days of music where it was restricted to classical tunes and melodic melodies. In this time music has evolved to something of individual celebration, achievement, and even a battle call for the rights of people everywhere expressed though a large range of musical genres and styles. Music can be split into different sections based on how it is produced, what it contains musically, and how it affects the audience through language or influence.

Introduction Heart rate is the most important part of an individual’s health. In this lab I am experimenting with different reactions of the heart. I am specifically looking at how the heart rate of an individual is affected by meditation and calming music. The purpose of this research is to determine if an individual with a higher heart rate, possible due to stress, could possibly lower their heart rate. Heart rate is very important and can be a major factor in other diseases or health issues.
My reason behind my hypothesis is that when rock music is played your heart rate rises and your brain thinks quicker ultimately resulting in a quicker response. Rock music will have a high response time because it is very loud versus country music which is very mellow and somewhat calming to the ears. Classical music would have a slower response time because most classical music starts off with a very soft beat and increases to a higher beat that would cause a slower reaction time. All in all, Rock music just totally makes sense when choosing a quicker reaction time because it is very loud and has a relative fast beat to

Reflecting back at how I personally expanded (and continue to expand) my music taste I see how different artists have altered my consciousness and played a role in the type of person I am. Within music genres there
Technology: The Significant Impacts on the Music Industry It’s intriguing how the music industry has significantly changed throughout the years due to the constant increase of technology. There are many different reasons to show how technology has made a huge impact whether positive or negative on this phenomenal industry. Music cultivates so much meaning to the world, and speaks volumes on the behalf of individuals when they don’t know what to physically say.

Despite there only being 21 different notes that can be played in our modern understanding of music performance, we can convey all ranges of emotions through this unique medium.
