Stress Management through Music A Statistical Study

Author Name: Soubhik Chakraborty and Others | Format: Paperback | Genre : Health & Fitness | Other Details

Scientists through their studies have revealed the healing powers of music in controlling blood pressure, negative emotions and stress. Statistics and probability have been used to analyse music successfully both in western and non-western (including Indian) music. In our study, the participants were divided into control group and case (music) group using randomized control trial. The case group participants, who were subjected to five music therapy sessions, responded better as compared to the control group participants as confirmed by statistical analysis. Perceived Stress Scale (PSS) was used for the assessment of stress. Hindustani music-classical, semi-classical and light-were effectively used in the music intervention. Further, some of the features of the music used in the work were also analysed statistically.
