Young people at risk of depression are more likely to listen habitually and repetitively to heavy metal music University of Melbourne researcher Dr Katrina McFerran has found.
A senior lecturer in Music Therapy at the Melbourne Conservatorium of Music, Dr McFerran is immersed in a new study that aims to find out why some young people use heavy metal music in a negative way.
By conducting in depth interviews with 50 young people aged between 13-18 along with a national survey of 1000 young people, Dr McFerran is looking to develop an early intervention model that can be integrated into schools to impact positively before behavioral problems occur.
"The mp3 revolution means that young people are accessing music more than ever before and it's not uncommon for some to listen to music for seven or eight hours a day," she said.
Dr McFerran said parents should be aware of their children's music listening habits, pick up on early warning signs and take early action.
As part of her study Dr McFerran is seeking input from young people, particularly those who suffer from depression and anxiety to better understand the negative affects of heavy metal. She is also interested in hearing from parents along with their teenagers.
