How Music Can Make You Go From Sad To Happy

By: Ashley Weltner

Music can be very powerful, one thing it can help change specifically is your emotions. Music can make you feel so many different emotions. It can make you feel happy or sad, or even cheer you up when you’re upset. This can be attained by both playing music, listening to it, or seeing it live.


Playing Music

It’s like playing it puts them in a whole different world where it is just the sheet music, their instrument, and them; as if nothing can hurt them at all. Musicians use music as an escape from the outside world. Just playing music can really improve their mood which results in a happier and healthier musician.


Listening to Music
