    Default playing music

    Does playing music at all affect left and right brain components or does it activate certain functions or both?

    music is generally thought of as a right-brain function

    I dunno, when I learn a new piece on piano it seems left brain intensive. Plotting out my fingering in each measure, ensuring that everything is in correct time and harmony. Though once everything is memorized I feel it becomes more of a right brain process as you can easily manipulate the volume, style, and timing on the fly to switch up the mood between different movements of the piece.
    ...Then I ducked my head and the lights went out, and two guns blazed in the dark;
    And a woman screamed, and the lights went up, and two men lay stiff and stark...
