Why music affects people differently?

Why every style of music affects people selectively?  Why music that goes beyond our favorite styles does not generate emotion in our brain? Can people understand alien music and get an aesthetic pleasure with it?

Very often you can hear as the fans of classical music reject modern musical styles, considering them as primitive. On the other hand, for fans of popular music, symphonic music often represented a lot of sounds which do not cause any emotions. Why does this happening?

Musical preferences begin to form in early childhood. Music affects people from various sources and forming the stable patterns in memory. Later, when a child hears the familiar musical patterns, the brain compares them with those ones that are already in memory. Adult human’s brain works in the same way. If the recognition process is successful, the person begins to experience emotions, usually positive.

A child, who grows in musician’s family, often heard a lot of classical music at home. It’s almost a guarantee of good perception of classical music in future, without problems. It is harder to learn the classical music, for people who grew as a fan of popular music styles.

Nonetheless, any person, regardless of the level of musical training and musical interests, can discover the perfection of new music areas that not previously available for perception.

In order to be recognized, the music should have a sufficiently large number of recognizable elements. Each of these building blocks helps the brain to create a complete image and classify it. All this happens on a subconscious level.

Thus, in order to have formed a strong understanding and identification, a person should listen to new music for a long time. Only then music affects people and generates emotion. Even if one does not get any explanation, gradually the brain creates the base of recognizable images, and a person begins to get pleasure from this kind of music. This works for any musical style.

The process will go faster if person at least superficially familiar with basic concepts. For classical music, it should be a musical form and musical theme. Every modern musical style also has purposes and means of expression. Detailed study of them is a good way to get unexpected discoveries and lot of pleasure.
