Psychological Effects Of Music At Events

February 22nd, 2013 by Kennedy

Adding music to your event can make the difference between a good event and one that is a huge success, leaving a memorable impression on your audience. It can enhance the atmosphere, set the mood, and get them pumped up. Using a little imagination along with creative planning, the music you choose for your next event is certain to not only keep your guests coming back for more, but will cause them to go out into the world brimming with excitement over what they experienced.

Through much research it has been concluded that the connection between music and the mind results in positive affects physically and psychologically. It has the power of speeding up the recovery of illnesses, healing, calming the mind, and also helping with anxiety and stress.

Music and Mood

Music has a direct influence on a person’s mood. Music causes smiles and music can cause tears, having a direct impact on mood. How music affects mood can also depend on what a person associates a particular song with. A tune that in some way relates to an individual’s childhood can bring back memories and connect it with something or someone in a person’s life, which can bring about all different kinds of moods.

Stores, restaurants, shopping malls, and many public places often have music playing in the background. The kind of music that’s played depends on the kind of audiences they target because music is found to heighten a customer’s experience. Music in malls is usually upbeat and fresh. People tend to spend more time in a place that plays pleasant music. Restaurants play music that creates the atmosphere conducive to the type of restaurant it is.

Ways music enhances your audience’s experience

When integrating music into your event, keep in mind that for the music to have positive effects it needs to stimulate the brain’s activity. Doing this is key to enhancing your entire event, improving your audience’s experience is so many ways. Here are just a few examples:

• Music increases concentration levels and improves memory
• Music makes learning more simple
• Music improves learning capacities
• Music increases confidence
• Music increases creativeness and problem-solving skills

Four things to consider when choosing the music for your event

1. Consider the theme of the event and choose music that fits it.
2. Consider the average age of your audience and what type of people they are.
3. Choose low-key and relaxed music as the audience is arriving and mingling around.
4. Change to upbeat tunes once the audience is seated and the event is about to get started. This will get the audience’s attention and create excitement.

Kennedy was very professional, really entertaining and completely different to what we have booked in the past in terms of an after dinner speaker and entertainment. The performance amazed the whole audience and really lifted the spirits in the entire room in time for our formal proceedings.I would definitely recommend Kennedy to anyone looking for corporate entertainment.

What a fantastic night’s entertainment Mind of Kennedy provided. Some of the stuff he did is still being talked about at our company days after! Make sure you book him for your corporate event; you won’t be disappointed!

(Feedback about our ruby wedding party last night) – Kennedy was absolutely fantastic. Not only did he work the room really well, and include people from different parts of the room, which is so important, but also he was an absolute delight to work with before, during and after the event... no trouble at all and completely accommodating. The act was tremendous and I love the idea that all our guests are sitting at home today over the Sunday papers, saying "how did he do that?!" I would have no hesitation in recommending Kennedy to anyone I know. Best wishes and thanks again to Kennedy for entertaining all our guests so well at our party. Jane & Pete Bradshaw

Great to see #lesmiserables today. Some of the best cast in a few years. Although I thought Javert was quite poor today. Brilliant show!

Quick #nandos before #LesMiserables matinee with @theroberttemple

What a night! Fantastic performances all round at #42ndstreet #london #theatre

So I went to the record shop and I said "What have you got by The Doors?" He said: "A bucket of sand and a fire blanket!" - Tim Vine
