Like other rewards (such as food, sex, and money), pleasurable music activates structures in the dopaminergic reward system, wich means, that listening to music can lead to an increase of dopamine. When you are listening to a piano cover of a known popular song, it’s the thrill of anticipation and having those expectations met, that gives you that instant gratification in form of a dopamine kick.
With these facts in mind, all the piano covers released under the PIANOHOLIC brand have been composed to create an outstanding sound experience and a long-lasting anticipation phase for the listener. Listening to these piano covers on a daily basis can therefore increase your dopamine level and lead to a more positive mood.

One study that examined the effects of instrumental music on relaxation was published in the Journal of Advanced Nursing in 2005. In this study, researchers recruited 50 hospitalized patients who reported feeling anxious or stressed. The patients were randomly assigned to listen to either 30 minutes of instrumental music or no music (the control group) each day for a period of four days. The researchers found that the patients who listened to instrumental music reported significantly lower levels of anxiety and stress, as well as higher levels of relaxation, compared to the control group.
It is worth noting that this study was small and only looked at the effects of instrumental music on a specific population (hospitalized patients) over a short period of time. Therefore, the results of this study should be interpreted with caution and may not necessarily generalize to other populations or contexts. However, the findings do suggest that listening to instrumental music may have a quick and positive effect on feelings of anxiety and stress, and may promote relaxation.
