Music is a very poweful tool. It can affect your psychology very fast. Remember the last time you listened to a happy song being in a bad mood and you got high before the song ended. Or the opposite. Remember the last time you where high and while listening to a sad song your psychology dropped suddenly. It is for sure that music plays a huge role in our psychology and there is a reason for that.
Music has psychoacoustic properties. What does this mean? It means that the way music vibrates can affect our nervous system. Why? Because, in reality, music is a combination of sounds, and sounds are waves. Just like the waves your neurons deliver to your brain. So, you might imagine where it goes. When the waves of sounds being produced by music coordinate themselves with the waves being delivered from your neurons to your brain, the information being delivered carries also the information of music. If the waves being produced by the sounds of music are harmonious, your psychology will be increased. If the waves being produced by the sounds of music are disharmonious, your psychology will fall.
This is a very simple explanation of how music affects your psychology. The opposite is also true. While trying to produce a song (even a single melody), your psychology plays a huge role on how this melody will be produced. If your psychology is high, your melody will be harmonious. If your psychology is low, your melody will be disharmonious.
