Music’s power has been both recognised and documented, certainly since the time of the Ancient Greeks. The power of face-to-face meetings, as opposed to communication by various other means - even aided by a battery of technological developments – is also widely accepted.
The social and cultural identity of teenagers is largely intertwined with their music; music is capable of providing joy and interest right through to the grave, soothing the sick and enhancing the lives of the elderly.
