    Music is involved in everyone’s life; whether its music playing in the background of a store or on the radio in a car. But have you ever thought about the effects music can have on someone, specifically on developing teens? Or how about the feeling of acceptance and happiness one can get from listening to their favorite song or artist? Music can even be an outlet for people to be vulnerable and feel their emotions they usually wouldn’t show.

    Teenagers listen to a variety of music genres like country, pop, rap, rock and more. Although there’s a wide diversity of music, they all play the same roll of helping teenagers express themselves in many ways.
