In a 1986 interview with Rolling Stone Magazine, Billy Joel said, “I think music in itself is healing. It's an explosive expression of humanity. It's something we are all touched by. No matter what culture you're from, everyone loves music.” All the way back in the 80’s, Billy Joel was on to something. Beyond the pure enjoyment of it, studies reveal music can help both children and adults in a variety of ways. New research indicates music can help reduce stress and anxiety, and it can even help with physical pain management.
