  1. Classical music undoubtedly has a beneficial effect. Gerard Depardieu was cured of his stutter by listening to Mozart's music on a doctor's prescription. The therapeutic effect of sound on the human body is based on different frequencies of sound vibrations that resonate with certain organs or the entire body.

  2. Music can affect a person in two ways: Physically (at the level of air vibrations) and Mentally (at the level of influencing mood and thought processes).

    From a physical point of view, short-term fluctuations in air temperature cannot somehow affect the human body and “resonate” with its internal organs and systems. At least I haven't seen any research confirming this. Otherwise, there would be a “Brown Note”.

    But a long-term acoustic effect on the body is quite possible. For example, in 1999, the World Health Organization confirmed a link between prolonged exposure to noise levels of 67-70 dB and hypertension. Here we are talking primarily about noise, but if you listen to classical music at the same volume without stopping, similar correlations are likely to be found.

    But from the point of view of the impact of music on the human brain, everything is a little more complicated. In athletes, energetic music allows you to do a couple of extra repetitions in strength exercises. It allows runners to adjust to the rhythm and get less tired. Pleasant relaxing music during meditation can allow you to relax more and reduce the level of stress in the body. And music that is unpleasant to you can worsen your cognitive qualities, reduce concentration, and reduce performance.

    I think that it is incorrect to talk about the benefits or harms of classical music. Physiologically, music cannot affect the human body. But at the level of mood — very much even can, and not only classical.
