Research - Music is Good!

We all know playing music and singing feels good. But why? Why is music universal in every human society? And is there any evidence that involvement in music is good for our health?

The club commissioned local musician and academic Steve Martin to research these questions over several months in 2016. Steve presented his findings at a "LIve@Newport" event on 21 August.

Here are Steve's PowerPoint slides.
