dc.description.abstract It was hypothesized that people who like rock music will be more enthusiastic in their mood responses to all types of music than people who like classical music. The mood responses of the rock group will be greater (in group percentage) than the mood responses of an equally numbered classical group. The subjects included 115 students enrolled in introductory psychology classes, fulfilling a course requirement at California State University, Sacramento, during the fall semester of 1975. There were 63 female and 52 male subjects, with an age range of 16 to 55 years, and a mean age of 21 years. A 34-minute presentation of 6 musical selections, 3-classical and 3 rock pieces, was used. The music was played on a Rek-O-Kui turntable, a Fisher Receiver, and an ADC speaker. The 3 classical pieces were played first, followed by the 3 rock pieces. These selections were chosen to represent a cross section of musical types. All songs were played in their entirety. A 3-minute interval of silence followed each recording to give the subjects time to record their response to the music. en_US
