Does music have an effect on your heart rate?

I notice that when I listen to music that it seems to calm me, does it do the same to my heart.


Answer by  Huntress (1935)

A study states that slow music can modulate heart rates and that faster music can result in faster heart rate and higher blood pressure. They stated that the style of music isn't a factor... just the pace of the music. So when you want to relax have a pet in your lap and put on your favorite slow music!

As per my own experience I have observed that music, defenitely, have effect on my heart rate. Try to listen melodious music or instrumental music when you are alone. When you concentrate the music and understand its meaning, you will forget everything and automatically your heart rate will be reduced.
