Anyway, I don't know anything on this subject (how music affects the brain). Well, I have a new subject to look for in the internet.
Mariela, with my PTSD, I can get deeply depressed at times, and then I lighten up my musical tastes, but if I am feeling a little anxious over every day life, then I use a more soothing approach. When concentrating, I don't actually "listen" to the music after some fades away, but leaves me with a very calm feeling, and Andrei says almost the same.

I think it does take time to get to this, especially if you have deprived yourself. Google'll probably get some interesting hits.
