Does music help a person concentrate? Yes and no! In order for a person to concentrate on something, it is not necessary to listen to music, because complete silence is good for the best concentration, and this applies to most of us. However, some people in the process of work, for thinking and making important decisions, need some background. The sound of music helps them not only focus, but also improve their mental performance.

We can explain its positive influence on the human condition at least by the fact that the reactions of our nervous system to cheerful and sentimental music are completely different. For example, participants in a recent experiment listened to a short song and interpreted a neutral expression as happy or sad, depending on which tune they heard.
Emotions that arise under the influence of music can be divided into two types — perceived and felt. This means that a person can understand the mood of a piece of music, even if they have never experienced such feelings in real life. Thus, in psychological disorders of a depressive nature, cheerful music only aggravates the condition of a person, while sad motives, on the contrary, bring back bright colors to life.
