The most terrifying part about going into the world of music and hearing a great song is being able to tell you how to feel about it, a new study has found.
When I first started, my friends were terrified of anything, and the more I got into it, the more that scared me, a research team from Duke University and the University of Toronto says in a new book, Fearful: The Surprising Truth About Why You Fear Everything.
“It’s one of the reasons that we have a lot of anxiety about music,” says Richard Ayoob, a researcher on the study.
The new book argues that our fears can be so easily dismissed because they can be linked to the music itself.
But for those of us who have already spent years worrying about the music that we love, Fearless will change your life.
“Fear is a good way to remind yourself that music is a place where you can connect with people and be comfortable with them,” Ayoobs said in a press release.
“The way that music affects your mind is something you can really change.”
The book also includes a series of interactive exercises designed to help you develop your own personal music theory and music-fear reduction skills.
It also provides tips for overcoming your fears and finding new love, with suggestions on music-related issues like relationship breakdowns, anxiety and depression, anxiety-related disorders and other related issues.
In addition to its title, the book has been published by Oxford University Press, so you can read it on the go.
The cover art is also available on the publisher’s website.
