INFLUENCE OF MUSIC APPRECIATION ON SELF-AWARENESS OF COLLEGE STUDENTS BASED ON PHILOSOPHY OF MUSIC
The mental health of college students is critical to the future of social and economic development. Based on the philosophy of music, this paper aims to disclose the influence of music appreciation on self-awareness of college students. Firstly, the basic theories were introduced on philosophy of music and self-awareness. Then, 15 college students, 8 males and 7 females, in different ages and majors, were selected to attend the music appreciation course. Their self-awareness levels were measured before and after the course, and compared in details. The results show that the appreciation of music works can effectively improve the self-awareness of college students; the self-awareness level of college students is not greatly affected by factors like gender, age and major. The research findings lay the theoretical basis for improving self-awareness and mental health of college students.
