Can listening to classical music help kids keep calm?

PBS NewsHour ran this feel-good segment today.

If you can't view Youtube for some reason, here's the PBS page with the transcript.

Overall it makes me feel more bad than good, considering they only hear 4 minutes of music and that includes announcements, and they have to listen to it over a crappy PA system. But I suppose it's better than nothing. Maybe it will prompt a few of them to check it out on Spotify.
