Abstract/Description

College students are one of the biggest populations impacted by stress which can stem from various aspects of their lives. It is thought that this is attributed to college being the transitional period between childhood and adulthood. Developing healthy coping strategies is imperative for this population because it reduces the psychological and physiological effects of stress. Many studies have evaluated the stress reducing effects of the exposure to different types of music. These studies prove that listening to music as a coping strategy poses high success when compared to others, and that classical, self-preferred, and instrumental music are the most effective genres. There is a need for more studies that compare these seemingly effective musical genres to one another. The purpose of this study is to examine the effectiveness of music listening for decreasing stress in college students. This study will be comparing self-preferred music to instrumental music.
