BODY COMBAT™ CLASSIC MUSIC IMPROVES ADOLESCENT'S STATE OF MIND

ABSTRACT We analysed the effect classes without music and the Music Body Combat ™ programme on the moods of 29 teenagers, 18 females and 11 males, aged 12-15 years. We used a questionnaire listing of “Lista de Estados de Ânimo-Reduzida e Ilustrada” (List of Illustrated-Lowered States) (LEA-IR) consisting of 14 adjectives (7 positive variables and 7 negative) applied before and after the body classes combat ™ in the first week without music, and in the second week with music. We used the Shapiro-Wilk test and ꭓ² McNemar test to verify the association of the variables at significance p <0.05, that is, 10%, 5% and 1%, confidence interval 90, 95 and 99%, respectively. There was an increase in positive feelings after class with music: "happy/joyful" (p=0.0001), "spiritual" (p<0.001), "active/energy" (p=0.0263), "light" (p<0.001 ). The variables for negative feelings decreased: "Sad" (p=0.0008), "unpleasant" (p=0.0013), "shy" (p=0.0001) and "scared" (p=0.0001). The “tired” adjective increased in class without music (p=0.0020) and with music (p=0.0001). It was found that the Music Body Combat ™ programme significantly increased positive feelings and reduced the negative, and was a motivational to adolescents to join the exercise.
