    The aim of this paper is to find out, whether the modern music has a relaxing effect on today’s youngsters. The theoretical part will present the period of adolescence and especially all the challenges they face during this time. These challenges can represent a high amount of stress in a youngster’s life, and one of the ways of stress relief is music. In addition to having a relaxing effect, music also enables them to shape their identity and to integrate into groups of people that share the same taste in music. Music is also an important factor when working with youngsters in social education professions. The empirical part shows the qualitative research. During our workshops we used the method of directed conversation where we researched, what kind of an effect various modern music styles have on youngsters while creating. The results show that rock, pop and rock pop have the best effect on female participants. These are also the music styles that the female participants mostly listen, whereas the classical music did not suit them. Girls were also enthusiastic about art activities, because they could express themselves and relax. The female participants change their mind about, which popular music they like, at least every two weeks, which shows how fast the news travels on what is popular and what is not, and how full the market is of new music material. The fast changing modern music styles makes the trend tracking difficult.
