The main objective of this research is to state the effects of pop music (and music videos) to overall well being of children and teens. This paper will focus on the negative side, on two major fields: Behavior (including health) and Interpersonal relations.

I picked 10 current Pinoy music videos of varied genres. I formulated a mini questionnaire and let random children and teens answer it. It took me almost 3 weeks to gather information and make conclusions.

I chose to do a research on the effects of listening and watching pop music/music videos because me, myself is an avid listener and viewer of pop music. It will be much easier for me to do a research if I choose a topic, which is very relatable/close to my heart and to my being. And also, the reading assigned to me in the class, which is an experiment to pop music video viewers and its effects to gender and sexuality of teenagers, influenced me to do this paper. Below is the actual survey questionnaire that I gave to 8-20 year old children and teens, to be followed by an explanation of why I chose those kinds of questions.

In early 1950s patterns of ownership started to change from individual stations to “chains” Todd Storz and Gordon McLendon both owned radio chains, who solved the problem of unavailable teens during school hours, by making the “Top Forty” radio which played these top 40 songs in constant rotation. This method originated when Storz and Bill Stewart noticed how a person chose the same song in the jukebox even though it was played all day. Though this method received negative reviews from deejays who were not needed anymore, in the short term it was clear that the opposite happened and new styles of music or new artists could make it on the radio, since the charts were now based on jukeboxes and what audience wanted. Canada was not the same as the US, so people started tuning in to American radio stations. CHUM AM in Toronto adopted the Storz format in 1957.

Popular music because of the fact that, primitive music could not be related to either the traditional ottoman music or from the western form of music. Popular music were sung by chiefly the non-Muslim women. In the 1960s, there was fusions of the pop music and the Ottoman psyche which was particularly common in Turkey. In the 1970s, Sezen Aksu a female song writer and singer became popular and changed the scene of the music scene (Richard, T. 1999). In the 1990 pop music began to find its true meaning, this is because, it is not merely a type of music as it may be considered, but as a culture, it became part of everyday city-life that cannot be separated with the lifestyle and sentiments of city life. During the Ozall administration, in the 1980s, the free market economy which became a state policy, brought new acceleration to the Turkish music industry. World class studios and consumer ideology to the youth, this brought a new, fast rhythmic urban life and pulse (Simon, B. 1999).

Australian and American Pop Music

...“Is Australian Popular Music of the 20th Century a mere imitation of American Popular Music of the 20th Century?” Validate your viewpoint by referencing specific music styles, characteristic features of music styles (instrumentation, performance style, rhythm, melody, intervals/scales/blue notes, harmony, texture, and form), bands, vocalists and specific songs. The 20th century has provided music that was the soundtrack for a generation. During this period there was a rise of pop music and its demand. American bands and artists were monopolizing the market, pumping out band after band. Record labels that were prominent at the time were Atlantic, EMI and Warner Bro’s records. The rise of the Billboard charts and magazine also played a significant role in the success of pop music. Australia was also producing bands that were ranking very high on the charts with smash hits. This phenomenon of pop music and pop culture has defiantly defined the generations that it came from. By analyzing and discussing the popular music of the 20th century, we can see that Australia is not just a mere imitation of American popular music. Musical Roots The cultural music of Australia can be traced beck through to the Aborigines. They practiced music not as an art form or means of entertainment but rather as a spiritual ritual or a method of story telling. Their influence on Australian mainstream music can be heard today through their instruments the didgeridoo and the clap sticks. In the...

Music Effect on Student

...1 Teenagers’ Reasons for Listening to Music and the Students’ Perception of the Effects of Listening When Completing School Assignments1 Jennifer Adriano Educational Leadership Doctoral Program Thomas DiPaola Educational Leadership Doctoral Program Center for Research and Evaluation The Alan Shawn Feinstein Graduate School Johnson & Wales University 1 Paper presented at the 42nd annual meeting of the New England Educational Research Organization, April, 2010, Portsmouth, NH. 2 Introduction Music is a significant part of our lives. People listen to music on the radio at home and in their car; they watch music videos on television or hand held technology; they buy CDs or download music; and they attend concerts. People also hear music in stores, restaurants, sporting events, and doctors’ offices (Schellenberg, Peretz, & Vieillard, 2008). Music is very important to many adolescents and they spend a considerable amount of their time listening to music. One study with N = 2,465 adolescents ages 13 and 14 found that participants listened to music for an average of 2.45 hours per day (North, Hargreaves, & O’Neill, 2000). Music has become a personal accompaniment in many teenagers’ lives because of the availability and popularity of personal music listening devices. In 2009, Jaffray released the results from the 18th semi-annual survey, “taking stock with teens.” The team of researchers surveyed approximately N = 1,200 students, with an average age of 16.3,......

Music and Its Effect on the Learning Experience of Children from Early Childhood to Adulthood

...Music and Its Effect on the Learning Experience of Children from Early Childhood To Adulthood Abstract Research proves that music has a major impact on the brain of individuals of all ages. This work focuses on how the use of music, melody, and song can play a positive role in the learning experiences of children throughout all grade levels if implement by teachers and instructors. With the assistance of three children, one from each age group (early childhood, middle to late childhood, and adolescence) it is proven that music does have an effect on the learning experience. It is also proven that ideas can be drawn from the developmental theories of Jean Piaget, Lev Vgotsky, and Sigmund Freud to correlate with the responses of the three children about how music effects their learning. Introduction If you were told that two groups of students in a case study were found to improve at significantly different rates in learning subjects such as reading and math in an elementary school what would you think was the independent variable used in the case study? Would you suspect that the independent variable was a difference curriculum? Maybe you would suggest that it could have been a difference in teachers? Or perhaps the groups were in different schools, private or public, urban or suburban. But how likely would you think it that the significant difference in progress could be......

Negative Effects of Television on Children

...Negative Effects of Television on Children           Fifty-nine percent of children younger than two years regularly watch an average of 1.3 hours of television a day. Television is one of the most common media that is affecting children’s lives. Television impacts a child on how much television they watch, their age, personality, and if they watch television with or without their parents. The idea is that children get influenced in what their watching, so if they are watching a negative show; it is most likely that they will have an aggressive behaviour.  However, many people including children and teens are influenced by television which has many negative effects.  Television has negative effects on children because it promotes violence among children, has negative effects on healthy child development, and exposes children to sexual content.           Hundreds of studies have shown that how violent shows on television effects children and teens. Kids may become aware to violence and more aggressive, when they watch programs that include violence. Because many violent acts are committed by “good kids”, so that’s why kids tend to follow violent shows. Even though, children are taught by their parents that it is not right to hit, television says that it is okay to hit, kick, and bite if you are the good guy. When a child tries to understand right or wrong, it leads to confusion. This leads to more violence because children do not know what is right or wrong for them, so......

The Negative Effects of Video Games on Young Children

...The Negative Effects of Video Games on Young Children The adoption of video games into modern culture has increased dramatically as technology has advanced over time. Early video games began as text based adventures often with few crude graphics but still had a cult like following of the few who had access to them. As technology improved video games began to be mass marketed to users of new video game console and personal computer systems. Thus began the integration of gaming into the everyday lives of people around the globe in what would become a multibillion dollar industry. Numerous companies, such as Nintendo and Sony, began creating video games that would capture the minds and imagination of millions with the hopes of becoming a major part in the everyday lives of their customers. Unfortunately for the end consumer the costs have not always outweighed the benefits. As industry titans compete for consumer attention the science of improving gaming and technology to support it has become so skilled that the end users can become victims of their own fixations of alternate realities and antisocial social gaming. This essay seeks to identify the problems associated with video game use and its impact on consumers - particularly children. The affects of video games on consumers has been studied from many different perspectives over the years as the industry has grown. Most have leaned towards the psychological impact of more violent games or the impact of video......

Negative Effects of Cartoons on Children

...Children have become much more interested in cartoons over many years and it has become a primary action to some lives. Typically, children begin watching cartoons on television at an early age of six months, and by the age two or three children become enthusiastic viewers. This has become a problem because too many children are watching too much television and the shows that they are watching cartoons have become violent and addictive. The Children who watch too much cartoons on television are more likely to have mental and emotional problems, along with brain and eye injuries and unexpectedly the risk of a physical problem increases. Education • According to a report titled "The Effects of Cartoon Characters as Motivators of Preschool Disadvantaged Children," cartoon characters stimulate interpersonal behavior, learning and social growth. Children associate with cartoon characters more readily than adults in many cases and tend to retain the lessons imparted more readily. If a cartoon character conveys an educational or moral lesson, then it can help speed up the learning process in children. Violence • Many cartoons depict scenes of violence or danger, yet whitewash the effects of that violence. For instance, a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle may beat up a bad guy in one scene, only to see that bad guy appear unharmed in the next scene. Without proper lessons to counterbalance those effects, children may grow up aggressive and eager to engage in......

Korean Pop Music

...Korean Pop Recently, Korean artists have become more and more popular in America. Rain, a Korean singer, recently held a concert at the Madison Square Garden, which was sold out. SNSD was on the David Letterman Show. A song by Wonder Girls was included in the Billboard Hot 100 Songs. A Korean-Pop chart was even added to the Billboard charts. But why is Korean music becoming so popular in America? Korean music is different from the music in America. In my opinion, the Korean artists have unique musical and performance styles, which are new and fresh compared to some American styles. For example, a famous Korean band named 2AM will just stand on the stage and sing slow and emotional songs, while American artists such as Lady Gaga, Rihanna, and Katy Perry all sing and dance. The reason 2AM performs this way is because they focused on their actual ability to sing and understand the song more than on performance. Another group from Korea is a group called f(x). They sing about things that don’t really make sense together – they will sing about a ‘Pinocchio’, and go straight into saying they are in danger. 2AM and f(x) are two of the many examples of how Korean music is different from American music. The other artists all have unique styles and they are different from each other. The Korean artists are ‘perfect’ at what they do. The Korean artists are groomed by their companies to look, sing and dance extremely well. The entertainment companies will plan every step needed......

Pop Culture's Effect on the Maturity of Children

...The past 15 years of popular entertainment have progressively brought a shocking force for children to grow up faster. For me, this disturbing trend has been obvious to observe because I have a younger sister who is 12. In grade school, my friends and I did not have favorite television programs other than a few silly cartoons such as “Ed Edd and Eddy,” “Fairly Odd Parents,” and of course the infamous “Spongebob Squarepants.” It is quite unfortunate that I am not able to say the same for my younger sister as poisonous shows such as “Hannah Montana,”  “Victorious,” and “iCarly” engulfed her and her peers in elementary school. I characterize them as poisonous for a few reasons, primarily it is because they glorify “hooking up” with boys at an early age. They glorify going out earlier. They glorify makeup and prissiness earlier. They glorify the desire of attention from boys and provoke drama earlier. In summary, they celebrate young girls acting older earlier than they should, when in reality, these adolescents lack true maturity and life experience. As James Bond’s spy missions and his lady comrades began to intrigue me as I entered middle school, my sister had already cycled through numerous obsessions for multiple boy bands from “The Jonas Brothers” to “One Direction,” to “Justin Bieber.” The constant flow of this earlier maturing has progressed nonstop over the years; however, the last few have engulfed my sister and her friends like never before. The “Spy Kids” movie......

Negative Effects of Computers on Children

...Children are exposed to computers at an early age and some even children know more than their parents about computers. However, regular computer use can have some negative effects on children, especially those that frequently use computers for extended periods of time. Visual Problems Some children who frequently use the computer may be at risk for developing vision problems. According to the American Optometric Association, children can be even more susceptible than adult to developing eye discomfort, fatigue, headaches and blurred vision. One reason this may occur is that a child may be more apt to ignore problems when they are viewing a computer screen. For example, an adult that is having problems with glare when viewing a computer screen may try to adjust the screen to reduce the glare. A child will not do this. Instead, a child will simply adapt to the problem. This can cause increased stress on their vision and can potentially lead a child to needing glasses at an early age. These potential vision difficulties can also interfere in a child's ability to do schoolwork or read. Bates Method Secrets How to See Better Without Glasses & Improve Your Eyesight Naturally!

Negative Effects of Domestic Violence on Children

...THE NEGATIVE EFFECTS AND CONSEQUENCES OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE ON CHILDREN. Recent studies in the United States show that almost half of the children who had witnessed domestic violence or been physically assaulted , gets injured during these incidents. It can be defined as the misuse of power and an excessive act of control. It is possible that children get injured accidentally because they get caught in the violence which is usually directed at their mothers or they may be the victims of serious levels of physical punishment as well. After studying 1,888 child protection records authorities found that 27% of the cases was about domestic violence in the family (Gibbons, 1995). At an extreme level, physical abuse will cause death. A study of 30 child death examination exposed a strong combination between domestic violence and fatal child abuse (James,M. 1994). Another important effect of domestic violence on children’s experiences is social, such as separation from their community, family and friends, changing schools and often losing their homes with theirs possessions. Children who witnessed domestic violence have significantly more frequent behavioural problems and emotional disturbance than children who are not in an abusive environment. Researches all over the world imply that domestic violence affects children in many more ways and causes physical, behavioural and psychological problems. In the past two decades, there has been growing recognition of the of......
