Toe-tapping and hair-raising: discover the power of music

Some songs make us laugh and some songs make us cry, but why does music have the ability to affect us emotionally?

On this course, you’ll learn about music psychology and how our emotions work, by analysing Queen’s famous song, “Bohemian Rhapsody”.

You’ll find out how the mind interprets patterns in music and generates an emotional response as a result.

You’ll explore how music communicates with the brain’s reward centre, and generates a chemical reaction that can provide a feeling of happiness.

Finally, you’ll discover why emotional experiences are influenced by our own expectations.

This course is open to anyone interested in music psychology, but may be of particular interest to songwriters and composers.
