Insights and Opinions of College Students on Classical Piano Instrumental Music
Pelayo, Jose Maria G., III
Online Submission
Classical Piano Instrumental Music has been used for meditation hitherto. This study tried to discover the insights and opinions of individuals with no formal musical training and how it may affect their mood, emotions, feelings, imagination, attitude, perception in life, and personality. The researcher conducted this study in order to determine if this type of music could be a basis for meditation, relaxation, used for studying, reviewing, contemplation, or other purposes. The study used Yiruma, a Korean pianist, with his album "Poemusic." There were 26 participants in the study. Based on the results of the study, 84% will recommend classical piano instrumental music to others, especially their loved ones, as cited in our discussion after answering the questionnaire. During the discussion, 3 males and 1 female even cited that it was their first time to listen to this type of music but will still recommend it to their friends and family. The researcher may infer that this type of music could be accepted even by first time listeners and also by adolescents since the average age of the respondents of the study is 15.8 years old.
