Whether you are a struggling musician trying to make it in the music business, or if you are a tenure-paid college professor, music undoubtedly brings feeling, inspiration, and happiness to your business day, and your overall life in general. Depending on your tasks at hand though, certain types of music might yield more engaging, productive results than others. Different genres of music produce different chemical reactions within the brain, resulting in a variety of different feelings to arise within one’s own mind.
Take for example, embarking on a 20 hour road trip from Texas to Montana; would you rather be listening to slow, sleepy music, or upbeat, engaging, catchy music? Most people would answer with the latter option, mainly because it would help them to stay in a better mood, and if drowsy, hopefully not fall asleep (lol).
