Make an Impact: The Benefits of Adding Music to Your PowerPoint Slideshows
PowerPoint presentations are a powerful tool for communicating information, whether it’s for business meetings, educational purposes, or personal projects. While the content and visuals of your slideshow are crucial, adding music can take your presentation to the next level. In this article, we will explore the benefits of adding music to your PowerPoint slideshows and how it can make a lasting impact on your audience.
Enhances Emotional Connection
When you incorporate music into your PowerPoint slideshows, you have the opportunity to create an emotional connection with your audience. Music has a unique ability to evoke feelings and emotions in individuals, and by choosing the right soundtrack, you can set the tone for your presentation. Whether you want to inspire, motivate or create a sense of nostalgia, music can help you achieve that emotional connection with your listeners.
For example, if you’re giving a presentation on environmental conservation efforts, incorporating soft and soothing instrumental music in the background can evoke feelings of calmness and serenity. On the other hand, if you’re presenting on a topic related to innovation and progress, using upbeat and energetic music can create excitement among your audience.
In today’s fast-paced world where people are constantly bombarded with information, it’s important to capture and hold their attention throughout your presentation. Adding music to your PowerPoint slideshows can help in this regard by creating a captivating atmosphere that keeps your audience engaged.
By carefully selecting appropriate music that aligns with the message or theme of each slide or section of your presentation, you can maintain interest and prevent boredom. The right choice of background music not only grabs attention but also helps retain information better since our brains tend to associate memories with emotions.
Reinforces Key Messages
Using music strategically in your PowerPoint slideshows allows you to reinforce key messages within your presentation effectively. By carefully timing the music to match specific slides or transitions, you can emphasize important points and make them more memorable.
For instance, if you’re discussing the benefits of a new product, incorporating upbeat and lively music during the slide that highlights its features can create a positive association in the minds of your audience. Similarly, using soft and gentle music when discussing sensitive topics or serious issues can help convey empathy and compassion.
Sets a Professional Tone
Adding music to your PowerPoint slideshows not only adds an element of professionalism but also helps in setting the desired tone for your presentation. The choice of music should align with the nature of your topic and the overall tone you want to portray.
For example, if you’re delivering a business presentation, using instrumental tracks or classical music can create an atmosphere of sophistication and credibility. On the other hand, if your slideshow is meant for a more casual or creative audience, incorporating contemporary or genre-specific music may be more appropriate.
In conclusion, adding music to your PowerPoint slideshows offers numerous benefits that can enhance your overall presentation. It creates an emotional connection with your audience, captivates attention, reinforces key messages, and sets a professional tone. However, it’s important to choose appropriate music that complements your content and conveys the desired message effectively. With careful consideration and strategic use of background music, you can make a lasting impact on your audience and deliver an engaging presentation that stands out from the rest.

The Newcomb’s Model
THEODORE M.NEWCOMB (July 24, 1903) in Rock Creek, at the northeastern tip of Ohio and he was a great pioneer in the field of social psychology. Merely 50 years he worked for the improvement of human motivation, perception and learning to shape the deep understanding of social process. In 1929, he started his professional career in the department of psychology at University of Michigan. In 1931, he moved to Cleveland College, University of Western Reserve from University of Michigan. In 1934, he got a great offer from New Bennington College in Vermont which caused remarkable changes in his rest of his professional career. His works “Personality and Social Change” (1943), “Social Psychology” (1950). He published a new social approach in field of communication which is called “ABX” system (later it became Newcomb’s model) and it’s published in the name of “An Approach to the Study of Communicative Acts (1953)”. He published another great work in the field of social psychology called “The Acquaintance Process” (1961).
The New Comb’s model of communication was introduced by Theodore M Newcomb of the University of Michigan in 1953. He gives different approach to the communication process. The main purpose of this theory is to introduce the role of communication in a social relationship (society) and to maintain social equilibrium within the social system. He does not include the message as a separate entity in his diagram, implying it only by use of directional arrows. He concentrates on the social purpose of communication, showing all communication as a means of sustaining relationships between people. Sometimes it’s called as an “ABX” model of communication.
The Newcomb’s model works in a triangular format or A-B-X system
A – Sender
B – Receiver
X – Matter of Concern
The relationship between A and B is like student and teacher, government and public or newspaper and readers. Sender and Receiver may work in a same flow but the same time some factor like “X” may affect their flow of relationship. “X” it may be third persons, issue, topic or policy.
For Example :
Teachers introduce a new policy to increase the college timing from 6 hours to 8 hours.
A – Teachers B – Students X – Policy or issue If both students and teachers are satisfied with this policy then the communication maintains its equilibrium status between them. Otherwise the flow of communication between “A” and “B” becomes trouble in the social system. If “A” or “B” is not ready to accept the policy then it will directly affect the social system and can’t maintain the equilibrium status. So Teachers”A” can convince students “B” as much as possible. Otherwise they have to make some adjustments in the Policy “X” and convince them towards the policy.

When we speak of communications what exactly is comminications as a whole? What is the definition of communication?
Communication means transferring messages from one to another. But there are various factor which involves in communication like feedback, channel, noise, gatekeeper, censorship ect…,
Any type of communication – “Sender and Receiver is always constant”
What are advantages and disadvantages of this model?
this triangle as a whole represent our social circle within which we exist and communicate each other.. more over the tendency of human being is the main thought that this model is going to explain..
Thanx for this sincere effort.
Thanks for the work.It is nice
please can someone give more examples of abx model,…as in everyday life..some live examples
Can any body give 5 examples based on this this newcombs model?
how will you explain the chart?
thanx,if you don’t mind please put more details
What if the two sides will not agree on the matter? does-this theory have some weakness?
I thought according to abx model, communication is the learned response to strain. but again in the explanations that are given, there is little concept about the strain part. for instance, communication between two people that agree to the same issue will be easy and thus in many cases, communication may seem not to be available or existing. But in cases where the parties are going to be having different views about something, every party will be in need to convincing the other party that what one party is talking about is the best idea and thus communication will be effective and will take place for quite a long period of time. corrections are appreciated if any……
Understanding each other
Newcomb’s essence of life was his ABX model. He was the first who focused the communication cycle insted of discussing message or MCR just like Laswell.
its the best way how to know the communication process and Newcomb’s Model is easiest Model To show The relax and full info to students
explanation is too short …. if you can give a little bit explanation it will be better for us to understand….any way thanks i got A handful information from these

Thanks for this but please elucidate more on this.
i think the Newcomb’s model is well elaborated in our daily lives especially when making decisions that involves two or more parties concerning a particular matter
Very nice and easy explanation.. Amazingly easy to understand.
What is the basic relevence to all these communication models?
whats the applicability of this model to any scientific based organisation
How does this model appy in a newspaper
How can this model be applied in a newspaper
according to me new cobweb concerned more on the sender,receiver and the topic but forgot to think about some elements of communication like communication channel and feed back
this theory is applicable to a greater extent but it did not mention the strengths and weaknesses
please what are advantages and disadvantages of this theory we need to know because this is not educative enough thanks
Thank you thank you thank you…
