  •  Junle Richard Chen    


The purpose of this study was to determine the impact of different genres of music (Jazz, Hip-hop, Pop, Classical) on the cognitive abilities, calmness, stress, mood, and energy of adolescents. Utilizing Muse Headband, an EEG Monitoring app, and Sennheiser headphone, volunteers completed a designed experimental protocol and were tested on the aforementioned variables. The study found that all music indicated a trend of improved energy, stress, mood, and calmness. Although some of the results were insignificant, the consistency of the results suggests correlations between (a) calmness and cognitive abilities, (b) stress and calmness, (c) mood and energy level, and (d) calmness and energy level.
