Many animals like humans have an affinity to music. This olden retriever definitely enjoys and gets into the beat of his masters guitar strumming
Not surprising we all have our unique preference for music. What you consider soothing and relaxing could very well be different from what your partner or friend would listen to. A person who has a tendency to mania or psychosis will invariably listen to hard rock and find that it has a calming effect on their moods. Whereas other people like me find that it has just the opposite for them.
Music can often unlock our creativity. Albert Einstein said, “If I were not a physicist, I would probably be a musician. I often think in music. I live my daydreams in music. I see my life in terms of music. . . . I get most joy in life out of music.
