Every known culture on the earth has
a musical connection.
Some students have made claims
that listening to certain types of music such as:

Instead of following the school's advice,
his parents bought him a violin.
Albert became good at the violin.
According to reports,

grow up to have lower rates of addictive behaviors,
better academic performance,
and greater preparedness for college and the work force.

exposure to violence,
sexual messages, sexual stereotypes,
and use of substances of abuse in music and videos
could produce significant changes
in behaviors and attitudes
of young listeners and/or viewers.

for certain types of music
could be correlated or associated
with certain behaviors,
i.e., reduced interest in academic study
and long term success.

exhibit more anger and aggression,
tend to have an increase of violent behavior,
and a lesser regard for women
