The psychology of Music in everyday life


On a noisy corner


Music is a part of everyone's daily lives. On the radio, in the pub, as we shop even and even music we make ourselves. 

How does music influence us? Can it shape our emotions? Does music help us understand who we are?

I am one of many researchers exploring music in everyday life. On a noisy corner aims to bring together information, news and events exploring the psychology of how music has the impact it does for all of us in our daily lives.
