TEENS AND MUSIC

Updated: Jul 16, 2019






It seems that every teen in America and around the world has a pair of earphones around their necks and or in their ears. For myself I'm always screaming at the top of my lungs trying to get my teen grandson's attention. I have to compete with music for his attention.


If you check our website home page and read the comments of the youth posted there you find out some very interesting things about how music affects youth and what those affects are. Those affects line up with what studies have shown and reported by the NAMM Foundation and posted on their website and shown below. The youth may not know why, but they do know that it does affect them in a positive way. https://www.nammfoundation.org/articles/2014-06-09/POSITIVE-INFLUENCE-PLAYIN


Social Benefits/Facts:

In the past, secondary students who participated in a music group at school reported the lowest lifetime and current use of all substances (tobacco, alcohol, and illicit drugs) ("The Benefits of Music Education." VH1: Save the Music. Accessed February 24, 2015.Teenagers may use musical experiences to form friendships, and to set themselves apart from parents and younger kids (© 2015 Program for Early Parent Support (PEPS), a 501(C)(3) nonprofit organization).Teens feel that playing music teaches self-discipline (Presentation to U.S. Congress, 2007, Washington D.C. Invited and arranged by the National Association of Music Merchants/NAMM, on “The Impact of Music on the Lives of Children and Adolescents”)Teens music as their “social glue” and as a bridge for building acceptance and tolerance for people of different ages and cultural backgrounds (Presentation to U.S. Congress, 2007, Washington D.C. Invited and arranged by the National Association of Music Merchants/NAMM, on “The Impact of Music on the Lives of Children and Adolescents”).Teens look at music as an opportunity in school for engagement as performers, composers and intelligent listeners—activities and qualities that appear to be deeply meaningful to them (Presentation to U.S. Congress, 2007, Washington D.C. Invited and arranged by the National Association of Music Merchants/NAMM, on “The Impact of Music on the Lives of Children and Adolescents”).Teens believe that playing music diminishes boundaries between people of different ethnic backgrounds, age groups and social interests (Presentation to U.S. Congress, 2007, Washington D.C. Invited and arranged by the National Association of Music Merchants/NAMM, on “The Impact of Music on the Lives of Children and Adolescents”).Teens indicate making music provides the freedom for teens to just be themselves; to be different; to be something they thought they could never be; to be comfortable. #teensandmusic #performingarts #trandscendingelements
