Young people tend to use music as a way of defining and sharing their sense of self, identity, or "personal brand."

So why is music important to teens? It turns out that there is a connection between how the brain develops during adolescence and how young people hear music. Overrun by emotions and a prefrontal cortex demanding instant gratification, many young people seek advice from peers instead of parents when faced with difficult decisions. They aren't doing this to make you mad; they're searching for their identity. They have to question your values, even when they agree with them. Why? They're facing pressures you never did: exorbitant college tuition costs, the demand for an elusively "perfect" social media presence, and the unrealistic idea that a student can and should do well in every subject. Looming over them is the worry that after graduation when faced with adulthood, there won't be many jobs available.
