How does music affect society?

Music is used to inform the masses. Music can influence the way we dance, dress, talk and it also sets the tone for cultures.

Answer

Music of a particular time seems to reflect the opposite of what's going on in society. For example, think of Mozart's music, it's some of the most beautiful music ever written, same with Beethoven. Now both of these composers lives weren't exactly easy. They suffered, lost their families and were constantly struggling, with either money or social acceptance. Now we have bands like Black Sabbath, and Cradle of Filth.....just look at these names. And the music seems to be written always about really bad violent things, sometimes sad...etc etc. Music is a form of art. How will it affect society? Well, music is one of those things that is incapable of sustaining life, but things like music, art, poetry....these are the types of things that we stay alive for. In some cases, depending on the type of music, the effect would be good, and on some others, it would be bad. The more aggressive the music, probably the more grumpy the people who listen to it.

Answer

Music affects society by the type of music people listen to which tells them which emotion that they will be feeling. Nowadays, the music we listen to is more about violence and aggressive action. We should pay attention more to the types of music that contributes to the types of emotion people are thinking about.

Music has long been an expression of people from different cultures around the world. The oldest artifacts that show people playing musical instruments are found in Asia and are around four thousand years old.

However, no matter how much music may have differed in different parts of the world, it seems that music served a general common purpose: to bring people together.
