Music and Movement

https://youtu.be/NsLyI1_R01M Following up from last week's blog. Sweet Caroline is associated with Pitt Football. It is impossible to attend a game and not see the power of music. This is also why we have Marching Bands!!!! This song goes out to all of those Pitt Students, Faculty, Staff, and Alumni who will be adjusting the lyrics, "Let's Go Pitt".

On the research front, previous research has shown that the tempo of music can have an affect on movement. The type of music we listen to causes us to synchronize our movements at times (Karageorghis & Terry, 1997). Hence group dance at athletic events and concerts.
