Custom sheet music wall art is the answer to the question of how to create a space that speaks to your emotions. Music wall art can make for a beautiful addition to your home since it showcases what is truly meaningful to you.
Music is an art form and a common form of emotional expression. When we listen to music, it can encourage deep emotions and cognitive enhancement. The effect of music on the brain and body depends, in part, on the genre of the music and on whether or not we like the song. For instance, Frank A. Russo, Ph.D., associate professor of psychology at Ryerson University states that someone who is a ‘metalhead’ would be able to hear all kinds of emotions in metal music that people who aren’t metalheads will only hear as ‘aggressive’ or ‘angry.’
Regardless of your taste in music, there are certain things that happen to all of us when we listen to music.
When you listen to music:
- You form and recall memories due to the release of dopamine.
- Your mood is boosted due to the release of dopamine, the ‘feel-good’ neurochemical.
- On spatial tasks and standardized tests, you perform better.
- Depending on the speed and type of music you are listening to, your blood pressure can rise or fall.
- Music affects your physical capacity. In workouts, you are able to push yourself longer and harder when listening to music.
- In response to particularly moving music, you can experience physical physical sensations on your skin.
- Pain is reduced. Researchers found that when people listened to their preferred music, tolerance and perceived control over a painful stimulus increased, and anxiety was decreased.
So, when you fill your home with custom sheet music wall art of your favorite tunes, you are giving yourself little reminders of powerful and emotional memories that hold a lot of value to you.

We get it. Plus, there are always some meaningful moments in everyone’s life that you would rather commemorate as music wall art and have hanging the entire year. A lot of life’s meaningful moments are paired with powerful songs. The combination of song and event create lasting memories that become significant to us. What better way to memorialize these times than with a music canvas?
