Job Title and Industry: Baker
Previous music knowledge (eg: I''m an amateur musician, I''ve studied music theory, I have no educated
musical knowledge): Musician, former student of music
Favourite Genres (types) of Music: Alternative Rock, Blues, Classic Rock, Folk, Hard Rock & Metal, Jazz,
Rap & Hip-Hop, Rock, Soundtracks,
If you like any other genres not mentioned above:
Question 1: i listen to music almost every day
Question 2: i listen to music for entertainment, inspiration, joy, education, fun.
Question 3: in my opinion music is for expressing your feelings, personal opinions, issues, and anything
else into a form of music, music may also be used for recreation, entertaining yourself and others.
Question 4: i grew up with various kinds of music as a child, but my dads influence on me was the likes of
Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, Neil Young, Red Chili Peppers and more. Whereas my mums side was more folk
based, and song lyricism.
Question 5: self expression is probably the main reason for composing, other than communication,
assesment, entertainment, experimentation, joy.
Question 6: music has inspired me many times, most of the time when music is inspiring to me, it is in the
form of the instrumentation, the instrumentation helps me write my own songs, recreate other
composers/musicians pieces, and just gain a deeper insight into music, nearly all forms of music can
inspire myself and others.
Question 7: Music with lyrics definitely, i feel it gives you an insight into the composer, and a look at the
feelings and motives behind the lyrics.
Question 8: absolutely, there have been many times when i have been angry, sad, happy, and music has
altered those states completely, if your upset listening to techno or rock may lift your mental state up and
cheer you up with excitement, etc.
Question 9: i would say Rock, its had a very important role in my life ever since i was just a toddler, its
been there through nearly all emotions, and it just sends a deep sentimental value.
Question 10: it depends on the mood, happiness tends to co-allign with Rock, techno, funk, alternative
music, whereas sad emotions tend to lean me towards listening to blues, folk, etc.
Question 11: cinematography and the music, the cinematography provides a visual feeling, a look at whats
happening all around you, its hard to match that emotion in certain movies. In saying that, certain movies
and their musical soundtracks can have an outstanding effect on your emotional positioning towards to the
movie, and your your mental state.
Question 12: no i do not believe a film would have the same atmospheric values, and emotional feelings
behind it if the soundtrack fell short of the movies quality, the music can be the most important part of a
film. A films score sets the place, feeling, and emotions behind every scene of every movie.
Question 13: absolutely, music can soothe the soul out of any emotion and situation, i personally use it as
a calming technique on occasion.
Question 14: yes i believe music therapy should be used as an effective method for treatment, as i am a
strong believer that music can help the soul and cure patients faster than others, there have been cases in
the past where patients under the care of music therapy have recovered faster than that of patients
without the care of music therapy, it should be vastly more accepted than what it is.
Question 15: The world without music would be almost silent, everything you hear everyday can be
transformed into a form of music, as is a strong basis of the genre "minimalism", the world needs music to
survive and keep reason in our mental states.

If you like any other genres not mentioned above:
Question 1: Every day.

Question 3: Music is to help you see the light when you're surrounded by darkness.

Previous music knowledge (eg: I''m an amateur musician, I''ve studied music theory, I have no educated
musical knowledge): I have next to no educated musical knowledge
Favourite Genres (types) of Music: Alternative Rock, Classic Rock, Dance & Electronic, Hard Rock & Metal,
Indie Music, Pop, R&B, Rap & Hip-Hop, Rock, Soundtracks,
If you like any other genres not mentioned above:
Question 1: Atleast once a day
Question 2: I listen to music for entertainment as well as dancing around and having fun
Question 3: Music is a way of expressing yourself, just as painting or drawing is to an artist.
Question 4: I grew up listening to pop and classic rock, I think it did influence my choice of music today. I
still enjoy listening to classic rock and I love dancing around the house to pop; just as I did as a kid.
Question 5: I think the driving force can also be another way to express yourself, through sound and
melodies.
Question 6: Music inspired me recently for my self image assignment at tafe. I was listening to songs about
how "you are perfect the way you are," it inspired me to take meaningful photos.
Question 7: I like music with instrumental scores and lyrics, I find instrumental scores sometimes add to
the mood of the song and helps convey the lyrics better
Question 8: I believe it does, certain songs remind us of a time and place; weather that be a good or bad;
and that can change our emotions.
Question 9: I don't think any specific genre of music impacts my emotions because I listen to almost
anything, it usually depends on beat of the song as to how I feel at that time. A fast paced song will make
me feel excited and ready to take on the world, while a slow paced song will relax me and keep me calm.
Question 10: I listen to any style of music when in those moods, the song influences my emotions, not
genre. Although I tend to listen to pop when I am happy, as most songs are fun to dance around to.
Question 11: I defiantly think the combination of song and film influences what emotion you feel when
watching that.
Question 12: I think the movie wouldnt impact as much as it does without a soundtrack, I wouldnt
necessarily say the movie is only as good as the soundtrack.
Question 13: I think it does; listening to a slow song with flutes, pianos and violins makes me feel relaxed.
Question 14: I say, if it works then why not. I would choose listening to music over taking a tablet any day.
And I strongly believe in alternative medicine.
Question 15: I think it would be...quiet. Without bird song in the morning to wake you up or crickets chirp
at night. A world without music would really suck.

musical knowledge): I'm an Amateur musician, I have studied Music at school.
Favourite Genres (types) of Music: Alternative Rock, Blues, Classic Rock, Dance & Electronic, Hard Rock &
Metal,
If you like any other genres not mentioned above: All metal ;)
Question 1: Every day
Question 2: Entertainment, mood, dance every thing possible.
Question 3: Relaxing the mood or dancing in some cases. ;)
Question 4: My dad brought me up with music such as Metallica, AC/DC etc. But then again I still do tend
to listen to some Techno, Some times, But I'll Listen to Heavy Metal Everyday.
Question 5: Maybe to bring there passion out... if that makes scene. When i sing or play guitar, it's kind of
letting out your inner self.
Question 6: Yes! Metallica, just there life style puts a smile to my face every time I listen to them. James
Hetfield's voice has like a calm tune, Then all of a sudden he brings out a power scream and blows you
away. Hoping some day that could be Eruption. :)
Question 7: I think maybe Instrumental, for example the song To Live is to Die by Metallica, Takes a bigger
impact in my emotions than compared to Fade to black also by Metallica. Because I think your mood goes
with the instrumental but the lyrical is like, shout words at you. But lyrical still in my opinion is
emotional, but i just think Instrumental takes it.
Question 8: Yes, In my case, when ever I'm feeling down, I'll listen to something more cheerful. :) Boosts
me up ^.^
Question 9: Well there is so many! Metal makes me happy and Techno makes me want to dance. :D
Question 10: Sad: Red Hot chili Peppers, Metallica, AC/DC, Black Sabbath makes me smile. :3 Happy: Every
thing! (Every thing Meaning Metal, Rock, Techno, Classical etc.) Yes! Defiantly! :D
Question 11: N/A
Question 12: No! Music has a huge impact on movies. For example Horror movies they have creepy music
to build up the tension. Or say Pirates of the Caribbean, They have a little instrumental music in the back
ground, to feel more involved... I guess. haha
Question 13: I would like to Believe so, It changes the mood. Say if I'm really down, the music just takes
over and you start singing happily :3
Question 14: Yes! like i said with my other answers, Music has helped me with most of my life, surely it
could do the same for someone else. C: But yes, I think it should be defiantly more accepted.
Question 15: Couldn't Imagine, the world would be nothing. :)

Job Title and Industry: AVID/Educator
Previous music knowledge (eg: I''m an amateur musician, I''ve studied music theory, I have no educated
musical knowledge): I am a Flautist and have studied College Music Theory and Appreciation (History).
Favourite Genres (types) of Music: Alternative Rock, Broadway & Vocalists, Classical Music, Classic Rock,
Folk, R&B, Soundtracks, World Music,
If you like any other genres not mentioned above:
Question 1: Nearly all the time.
Question 2: I listen for entertainment, mood enhancer, and thought gateway.
Question 3: Music is for Life. It should be a part of life rather than "IN" life. Of course what I mean by that
is closely related to volume and the type of music I listen to which is generally soundtrack.
Question 4: Kenny G and other instrumentalists along with the Disney Soundtrack and various Love Songs.
Because of the instrumentals in my past, I prefer music as a part of my life. It plays but it isn't loud and
obnoxious. Love Songs just make me giddy :3
Question 5: Comfort-ability? Some people just feel better composing and others performing.
Question 6: Yes. Simply Yes.
Question 7: Instrumentals, because even though they all ready have their own mood and setting it isn't as
prominent as those of songs that constantly scream, "THIS IS HOW YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO FEEL."
Instrumentals, to me, are easier to relate to memories, which is why certain pieces can affect me so
much.
Question 8: Yes.
Question 9: Instrumentals and Love Songs.
Question 10: Anything that lets me think.
Question 11: Music goes hand in hand with the whole realm of Cinematography but has a power of it's
own. A scene's dialogue or events can have a completely different meaning because of a change in the
soundtrack.
Question 12: Music has the ability to create meaning and settings. So the emotional impact of a film is
highly correlated to its musical score.
Question 13: Yes of course. If the sound of Superman's G Chord can Inspire, if Rock can cause Rebellion,
then why can't Music be Therapeutic?
Question 14: Yes it should, although I do not have an adequate amount of knowledge in this realm so I
can't correctly say why.
Question 15: Like telling me that good and evil do not exist.

Grade 6 and was choir captain in the final year.
Favourite Genres (types) of Music: Alternative Rock, Classic Rock, Indie Music, Pop, Rock, Soundtracks,
If you like any other genres not mentioned above:
Question 1: I listen to music every day.
Question 2: I love singing to the music in my car and home alone, I also listen to music every night before I
go to sleep as I tend to become an insomniac due to noises in the dark.
Question 3: Music is for sharing cultures as it is a universal language, it helps people get through the good
times and the bad. It's also a great addition to any movie, play or TV show.
Question 4: I listened to a lot of Smokie and Savage Garden among other songs of similar genres, and I
prefer them most of the time over the new age music.
Question 5: I think composers, the good ones anyway, pour their heart and souls into their music, it's their
way of communcating to the hearts and souls of the listeners.
Question 6: Music always inspires me, whether it be minute, like inspiring me to get out of bed and enjoy
the day, or in a big way like helping me through the first death in my life.
Question 7: Lyrics. A lot of the songs on my iPod for example, a lot of people would find old-fashioned and
something out of my usual listening genre, but they have deep and meaningful lyrics, even some that don't
pertain to me, but I love the message it sends.
Question 8: Yes, the best way I can explain it is, if you're happy, happy music makes you more happy; and
if you're sad, sad music helps the tears flow.
Question 9: I don't usually delve into genres that much, but heavy metal impacts on your emotions and
helps release anger, whereas blues impact your soft emotions.
Question 10: Well, the best way to put it is: I play happy music when I'm happy, sad music when I'm sad.
Happiness usually doesn't change after a while, but listening to sad music while sad makes me feel better.
Question 11: I think a healthy combination of all three evokes emotion, they all play a key role in it.
Question 12: I think the saying is right, a film wouldn't have the same emotional impact without the
music.
Question 13: Yes, music is always there if friends and family aren't.
Question 14: It should be used as part of the treatment, not for the whole method. It's understandable
why it sometimes has a bad reputation, but it should be given a little more respect.
Question 15: I honestly can't imagine a world without it.

Age: 35-39 (IIII)

Name: Stephen Neate
Age: 35-39
Male/Female: Male,
Job Title and Industry: Programmer - Internet
Previous music knowledge (eg: I''m an amateur musician, I''ve studied music theory, I have no educated
musical knowledge): No musical knowledge outside of school based curriculum where singing and piano
were taught, decades ago.
Favourite Genre of Music (eg: rock, pop, country etc...): Rock, Pop, Metal, Techno, Rave, House, Ska,
some blues, some classic rock (50's - 70's), some classical
Question 1: Many times a day
Question 2: For background when working and to drive too
Question 3: Purely for enjoyment for the listener and in a lot of cases the composer
Question 4: Blues and some soft rock when I was young, some of which was terrible (aka. Leon Redbone),
although being a teenager of the 80's (release of CD, walkman) is the main reason I like all different types
of music. Especially as that decade has some great and not so great artists.
Question 5: In a purely spiritual sense some composers just have a song inside them that they have to
make reality. Much like an architect, and many other artists. So, self expression yes, but in more cases
they are driven by the need to create and music is their outlet.
Question 6: Yes of course music can be inspiring. When doing gym work it helps keep your mood up to push
that extra mile. If feeling down a favourite song can perk you up, and some music just touches you at an
almost tribal level (think State of Origin crowd, with a fantastic pre game band INXS).
Question 7: Definitely music with lyrics, but I don't tend to listen to the words, just the sound made by the
combination.
Question 8: Absolutely, if you are depressed and listen to Eric Carmen's "All by myself" you will stay
depressed. The beat and sound can help lift your state up or down.
Question 9: Not really a genre I feel its more certain types of sound from a song which can be from any
genre
Question 10: Nearly always its rock music to pick my mood up to either make me feel better, or to help
work
Question 11: Definitely the music in combination, although not always a song. In some of the best horror
movies a simple score (aka Jaws) adds suspense that can't be done by just the cinematography, and that
particular music can install fear without the need to see a shark.
Question 12: A film without music wouldn't be watched. Star Wars without its symphony using different
parts for each character would be relegated to some B grade sci-fi of the 70's and 80's.
Question 13: I believe it could, particularly for improving someone's mood. Used in combination (like how
cinema does) it could prove very effective.
Question 14: Given some of the successes yes it should be more accepted, but then this comes down to
accreditation of the practitioner and the science. A franchise approach (to make money) from this field is
not helping with breaking down the barriers of credibility. In a lot of mental health cases music therapy
should be the first point of call, instead of prescribing drugs.
Question 15: Living without music and never knowing it existed would be fine although a little boring.
Living after having all music suddenly gone (and knowing it used to exist) would be harsh and could be
compared to going blind in your 30's. It is almost impossible to think of a world without some form of
music without the loss of other senses (touch) as human nature appears to be that of creating sound. Even
the earliest civilisations (and early tribes) had music and or dance.

Previous music knowledge (eg: I''m an amateur musician, I''ve studied music theory, I have no educated
musical knowledge): I am a complete idiot when it comes to music. I cannot play any instrument nor
carrying a tune. But I enjoy music.
Favourite Genres (types) of Music: Alternative Rock, Blues, Classic Rock, Hard Rock & Metal, Rock,
Soundtracks,
If you like any other genres not mentioned above:
Question 1: Everyday day and every chance I get
Question 2: I listen to have background noise. I enjoy having noise in the background no matter what I am
doing.
Question 3: Music is for enjoyment, expression of emotions and for relaxation.
Question 4: I grew up listening to old time classics and country and western mainly. Normally whatever
mum or dad liked listening to. Kids never really got a choice in it. To this day I do not enjoy country and
western. I can handle the odd song or two but it is not by choice.
Question 5: I think it is an outlet for their creativity. Rather than just copying someone else's music they
prefer to be individual.
Question 6: Not really. I think it has more influence on my emotions ie if I am feeling down I will listen to
catchy tunes and it will help my mood. But I can't say it has actually inspired me.
Question 7: I cannot say that one is more emotional than the other. It depends on my mood and
surroundings as to which would be more emotional at the time.
Question 8: Absolutely. For example if I have a migraine coming on I listen to classical music and this helps
me switch off and relieves the pain.
Question 9: As I enjoy a vast variety of music I cannot say that one genre has the most impact. I think
again it depends on my mental state at the time.
Question 10: Sad - Blues. Happy - whatever music I can get my hands on. I can feel a difference after
listening to them. It has a calming effect on me.
Question 11: The music and cinematography. If the music is spot on to the cinematography then this is
very powerful to me. if they are slighly off it can be distracting.
Question 12: Absolutely not. The music is part of the power that combines with the pictures to evoke
emotion and puts thoughts into your head about what the characters are feeling and thinking.
Question 13: Yes. It can help soothe a stressed mind and make you feel more calm and peaceful.
Question 14: I think it should be incorporated into the treatment if it will benefit. I don't believe it will be
the only method used but certainly it can assist in the overall treatment.
Question 15: Very boring. I would not like to think about that.

some kind of emotion or reaction from them that nothing else has been able to achieve.

Age: 40-44
Male/Female: Female,
Job Title and Industry: Professional Desk Jockey
Previous music knowledge (eg: I''m an amateur musician, I''ve studied music theory, I have no educated
musical knowledge): nada, only the limited about I have learned via daughter over last 7 years
Favourite Genre of Music (eg: rock, pop, country etc...): Australian Rock Music, Alterantive Rock, old
fashioned Ska, and of course the 80's
Question 1: Every Day
Question 2: Personal enjoyment, I work better if there is music in the background
Question 3: To relax and feel good
Question 4: I grew up listening to Country & Western, particularly on long car drives, to this day I cannot
stand it at all. Though when young at parties mum & aunts would have the likes of Beach Boys and Buddy
Holly etc., so have always associated more up-beat music with good times, and to this day probab ly still
prefer the sort of music that you can both sing along to and feel like having a bit of a groove LOL!
Question 5: Depends, I think some Composers make music for others to enjoy, or to share their feelings on
what they might have experienced, I think this is the best sort of music. But some I think do it because
they have technical knowledge and try to push boundaries, that sort of music I don't enjoy as it may be
brilliant and admired by other musicians, but like 'technically' fine art, it is missing 'something' that calls
to 'everyone'!
Question 6: Yes, When I feel flat and find it hard to get motivated for work I will ramp up favourite songs
that have an awesome beat to get myself in a different headspace and then get on with what I have to do.
Sometimes lyrics (and the way they have been sung) also has made me ponder an issue I had not
considered before, or alternatively, has dragged up a memory that had been forgotte n.
Question 7: Music with lyrics are always more emotional for me as it gives me more pleasure. I may like a
song because I like the 'sound' of it, then later on will actually listen to the lyrics properly and that will
only add another layer to the pleasure I got from the song.
Question 8: Definitely it can make an impact. Particular music can relax me or motivate me, or even if it
was say one of my Dad's favourites (he died a number of years ago), it can both make me sad and happy.
Happy as it may be reminding me of a time spend with my dad and also sad as I am being reminded that
he is no longer around anymore.
Question 9: Heaps of types, 60's boppy stuff, makes me think of childhood barbecues, Country & Western
reminds me of dreary long distance car rides, 80's dance music takes me back to teenage years, rock with
a beat makes me feel up-beat and motivated. Rarely do I like dreary or slow music, unless it has a potent
messa ge (ie Pink with Mr President) there is enough dreary in real life, we don't need to be made to feel
dreary.
Question 10: I listen to upbeat music at all times if possible, harder with a bigger bass if I need more of a
push to be more enthusiastic, dancier type if I am in a good mood & want to enjoy myself.
Question 11: Sorry I don't think there is only one main thing that can evoke motion in a film. All elements
work together, no use having beautiful music if the acting is lame, and no use having great acting if they
have totally inappropriate music to accompany what the director is trying to convey. Though having said
that, I think you can get away with 'average' scenery & acting, but you can't succeed without 'decent'
music.
Question 12: Most definitely. There have been some major film flops that have still had very successful
soundtracks (ie Xanadu), but I can't recall any great films that had a rubbish so undtrack?
Question 13: Yes I do. Music can get your adrenalin going and make you feel more pumped, it can also
depress you if it is too dreary over a period of time.
Question 14: I think if it was looked into and studied more it could be very effective therapy, particularly
when combined with other sensory perceptions. Everyone feels differently about different music, ie., I
find the music they play in day-spas dreary and most of the time it makes me feel like going to the toilet,
but, others find it relaxing. Same as Elevator music, they always seem to play something that is supposed
to be 'calming' but instead it just seems to make me feel more impatient. I think it is the sort of therapy
that needs more investigation to be effective on an individual basis.
Question 15: I can't imagine the world without music.

Question 4: didnt grow up with much music as the folks never played music at home. used to listen to
music in my bedroom tho.
Question 5: i think they are just like artists. They like to create things/pieces for other people to enjoy
and they get great satisfaction from watching their master pieces transform from an idea right through to
being performed by a live band and watching the expressions on the faces of people listening to it.
Question 6: not really inspired me however it does tend to influence my moods.
Question 7: instrumental scores. you dont get distracted by vocals. you tend to use your imagination more
and let the instruments take you on a magical journey rather than being told something through the lyrics.
Question 8: yes it can and does. some musical pieces of music can trigger different emotions
Question 9: musical pieces in theatre
Question 10: a more upbeat piece when sad which lightens the mood. more dance music when happy to
get the party started..
Question 11: the soundtrack behind the movie really evokes the emotions in a movie. with out the sound
track behind it, it is just a boring picture on the screen.
Question 12: no it would not. the sound tracks behind the films make the movie. there would not be a
movie with out it.
Question 13: i would tend to agree. music generates the soul.
Question 14: yes it should be. music can be very uplifting and anything to help maintain the health and
well being of an individual should be maximised.
Question 15: dull and boring. not to mention very quiet..

Question 9: Older music. It makes me re minis about the past.
Question 10: I like listening to Italian music as it makes me happy
Question 11: The music can say so much without any words being spoken sometimes.
Question 12: I agree. If the movie is great usually you always remember the music that went with it or vise
versa
Question 13: Yes. From experience it has helped when my children were babies to get them to sleep. It
helps me to sleep or to relax
Question 14: Definitely.

is more emotional i suppose
Question 12: no i agree that the film score needs to be written well for the movie to be a success but

Question 4: Grew up with country rock and roll, modern music of the time. The type of music hasn't
influenced the music I like now, as I listen to a wider range now. Hving music on the radio growing up and
learning music has stayed with me and I prefer music to TV.
Question 5: It's a talent they are born with, but I think it is a form of self-expression for them.
Question 6: Yes. Sometimes when I'm down, music will lift me. Usually it is an instrumental, sometimes
Gospel/Religious.
Question 7: Depends how I'm feeling, but probably instrumental, particularly violin.

lifts me up.

gospel/religious music, or Andre Rieu relaxes me.

years ago, and it was the film that had the most impact. Can't remember what the music was, but do

Question 12: From my experience, no.
Question 13: Yes. I have seen the effect music had on a person with a brain tumour - her favourite music
calmed her immediately if having a bad day. Works well with babies,too.
Question 14: I think it depends on the type of music. Have knwon classical music to make a person angry,
but others it is relaxing.

If you like any other genres not mentioned above:
Question 1: Nearly every day
Question 2: I listen for enjoyment, to create a peaceful mood, to dance to, gospel music to do worship by.
Question 3: Music creates a multitude of feelings i.e. it can make you feel calm, happy, excited, sad,
whimsical. I believe music helps us define what we feel inwardly.
Question 4: I grew up with a variety of music from rock n roll to light opera, ballads etc. I know it gave me
a liking for music which I have enjoyed my whole life. I do think that having listened to music growing up
gave me a broad appreciation for all types of music which I still have today. Yes my upbringing did mould
my liking for music.
Question 5: I think a lot of composers like writers they hear all kinds of music notes in their heads and
they write it down and it starts to form symphony's and songs etc. A lot of composers over time have
written their life stories to music. So if a person has something to say or feels something deeply
sometimes composing music is their way of expressing themselves and it can also be their way to
communicate to others.
Question 6: Yes. When I used to paint I always put on a certain kind of music that helped me to feel good
about painting. The same when I'm writing poetry I play background music that is soft and gentle like
meditation music and it helps me to think and create new pieces of poetry.
Question 7: Music I think with lyrics is more emotional for me. I enjoy piano music being played but music
with lyrics is more for me.
Question 8: Yes I do. Especially when I hear that dreadful heavy metal music blaring out of cars
sometimes. I believe sounds (won't call it music) like that do a lot of damage, it makes a person either
hyped up or more depressed. Dangerous music. It's also deafening.
Question 9: Light opera has the most impact on my emotions and I'm sure it's because it usually is
performed on stage with a story attached and it is more dramatic than other music.
Question 10: When I am sad I often listen to meditation music or I deliberately pick music like gospel
music that will lift my spirits. Usually after listening to gospel music I always feel better.
Question 11: I love movies and I do think that watching a movie without sound or music nowhere near
creates the atmosphere like it does when music is played or people are talking. It's definitely a
combination of music and film that evokes the emotion.
Question 12: No a film would not have the same emotional impact if the dialogue was not well written.
Sound and music can sometimes cover over what would otherwise be a corney mediocre movie.
Question 13: Absolutely. I know that the right music can help calm one down and it does have healing
qualities. It soothes the nerves and can put you in a place mentally that makes you feel happier.
Question 14: I do think that music can be used in a variety of places for physical and mental wellbeing.
i.e. hospitals, doctor surgeries, in operating theatres, dentists, prisons. These are all areas of high stress
and I believe that calming music would be a greart benefit.
Question 15: People would not communicate the same. It would be a dreary world without a doubt
without music.

Question 4: I grew up listening to Elvis, Col Joy etc and old time music played during the war years. I like

different time.
Question 5: I guess self-expression, communication, entertainment all play a part in composing, but that
does not mean they want to perform as they may not have the skills, voice etc or a need to perform. I like

course, need to be appropriate safeguards to ensure it is harnessed safely for any particulay situation.
