Full Abstract: In the 'Your Health' section. Two California researchers have found that playing musical instruments can lead to high blood pressure. The researchers at the University of California at San Diego found that the higher the musical note played by a French horn player, the higher his blood pressure, almost paralleling the rounded curve of a musical scale.
