Presentation Abstract

COVID-19 has caused many changes in society and people's everyday lives. These changes may have given rise to new levels of fear and stress among many. For those more affected by the pandemic, a shift in music taste may have occurred. During the semesters of Fall 2021 and Spring 2022, data from over 100 students has been collected. Participants rated the level of threat they feel because of COVID-19 and what music they have been listening to, using music categories from the Short Test Of Music Preferences (STOMP). It is predicted that people who feel more threatened by COVID-19 will prefer to listen to Reflective and Complex music (classical, jazz, and blues music). Implications will be discussed.
