Music is an art that can reconcile one to life and enhance it; music is rooted in the body, physically and emotionally based; music links extraversion and introversion. (Storr, Anthony. Music and the Mind. p 160-167. NY: Ballantine Books, 1992.)

Introverts try to avoid loud music, bright lights, noise in a learning situation, etc. Introverts perform better in quiet environments. (Ornstein, Robert, PhD. The Roots of the Self. p 54-55. NY: HarperCollins, 1995.)

Studies: instrumentalists, as compared to nonmusicians, tend to be more anxious and more introverted. Brass players tend to be more extraverted than other instrumentalists. (Howard, Pierce J., PhD. The Owner’s Manual for the Brain. p 186-189. GA: Bard Press, 1994, 2000.)
