Your daughter would get far more useful information (information that
would enlighten both her and her peers) if she did a study of the
effects of light; either amount of light or light quality.  Such
experiments are relatively easy to set up using common items found
around the house. Also there are volumes of sound scientific books and
papers written on this subject. 
As others have pointed out sound (not music) has been shown to have some
rather minor effects but establishing adquate controls for such studies
is very difficult.
