It has been found that music with a strong beat has the ability to stimulate brainwaves to the beat of the tempo. Therefore, faster beats will allow for more concentration. On the other hand, a slower tempo will create a calm and almost meditative state. This change in the brain can allow the mind to shift speeds on its own when it is needed. Music can affect the brain over time even when it is not being played.
