During this process, it became massified. So much so that nowadays, it is an absolutely democratic art form. It follows us everywhere: at trivial moments, like in the car on our way to the workplace, during a jog, or in the shower, or at crucial moments in our lives, like at weddings, funerals, or in celebrations with our loved ones. Like any other type of art, music holds tremendous power. But its immediacy distinguishes it from other arts. That’s why this cultural phenomenon has had and continues to have such a huge impact on our lives and in the course of History. Among other things, it can contribute to our development as human beings, shape our personalities, function as a way to express ourselves, and it can also bring people together. Its power has always fascinated researchers in various fields, who have extensively studied the impact of music on the human brain. Let’s see what the benefits of listening to music are and what effects it can have on our minds.
