Music engagement has long been considered as a medium in altering our emotions (Juslin & Sloboda, 2001). In this study we examined the role of music engagement on adolescent functioning. Adolescence is a period of biological, psychological, and social transformation, when individuals encounter potential increases in mood disruption and emotion dysregulation (Arnett, 1999). Building on the theory of music, mood, and movement (MMM; Murrock & Higgins, 2009), we tested positive emotions as a mediator through which music training affects wellbeing among adolescents in Hong Kong.
