Different types of music differently affect a person and his mood. It is advisable to listen to as diverse music as possible. Classical music has a positive effect on depression and anxiety, and increases concentration, awakens creativity and has a positive effect on the immune system. Techno or heavy metal can in some cases help to deal with negative energy and frustration, but such music also raises your heart rate and blood pressure. Jazz music requires more intellectual effort and concentration.

In terms of the influence of music on human development and social life, it has a generally positive impact on the personal and social development of young people, on socialization, self-esteem, social adjustment and positive attitudes towards life.

Music can play an important role in human development from an early age. It is one of the most powerful media in communication and reaching young people. To transfer certain knowledge, inform and educate them and influence the improvement of quality of life is far easier in a "tame" musical environment in which they feel safe and comfortable.
