What are the advantages and disadvantages of music?

Answer

Many people use music as therapy for a variety of reasons including as a treatment for Alzheimer's disease and related dementia. However, music does have the potential as a distraction in other areas of life.

Because music has so many advantages such as helping people sort through their feelings during emotional times such as breakups, deaths and even romantic encounters, many people do not see many disadvantages to listening to music. Of course, this depends upon the content of the music. While Alzheimer's patients tend to respond positively to music they knew in their younger days, many people may still decry the content of music, especially when it incorporates themes such as misogyny and violence.

Even with the debate over the negative or positive effects of music, scientific evidence has shown that listening to music triggers the release of dopamine in the brain. This means the listener gets a noticeable feeling of joy when listening to music. This may or may not have advantageous consequences because this means that music has the power to manipulate emotions. For instance, film scores have a unique importance in the filmmaking process in order to help the viewer know what types of emotions to feel during scenes.
