Both stimulating and relaxing music have been shown to affect human physiology. The affect of music volume on band grip strength is reported in this study. Eighteen subjects listened to four diverse music types at four different decibel levels, with strength being measured after each combination of style and volume. The data of individual subjects showed no correlation between volume and hand grip strength, however, the collective values of all subjects indicate that a direct relationship may exist.
