The Effect Music Has on Teenagers

As we all have specific music tastes that appeal to us, we have to consider how music takes effect on young teenagers in today’s society! As we all know the music industry expands, therefore, there are different music genres to interest the majority of teenagers. 

When teenagers listen to music, it allows them to express their true internal feelings without openly expressing their emotions. Artists in songs tend to portray their true feelings through the lyrics of their songs. A study has shown that 78% of artists express their feelings through their music. Therefore, not only does this give teenagers the opportunity to express their emotions without verbally saying so, but it also allows them to fully relate to the artist in the song. Furthermore, this can also take effect on how teenagers act around others.
