Does Classical Music Prevent Violence?

Listen to the last part of a 3-minute broadcast on a recent report from Britain suggesting that it does.

Research exists indicating that agitated behavior in nursing home patients is reduced by calming music.  And music therapy now is pretty much a fixture in psychological treatment of various disorders and disabilities.

While solid research about the effect of classical music on potentially violent behavior among the general populace seems hard to find, anecdotes and proposals abound.

Clearly, more research is needed!
