A lot of practitioners work with music and sound in their magical practices. For the course of human history, music has played a crucial role. That can be from binaural beats to a Britney Spears to a Disney musical parody on YouTube. People often use music, like art or reading, to escape this world and to put us in a certain mindset or mood. This is because music helps out with drawing certain emotions and other feelings when you desire to manifest something. I know when I have a headache, I will go for a long walk and listen to music. It helps soothe my headaches. It is a common belief that it helps if we use our voice during spell casting. Music follows a similar principle.
Music is used to even show worship to religious & spiritual figures too; many cultures see music as so beautiful that it must of came from the god(s). A church uses a choir to praise their god while other cultures have deities associated with music or a correspondence with a certain instrument. To this day, most cultures have & create their own music. Many people say that music bonds people together. It has often been used as a way for cultures to connect with one another even from two different languages; music can set the same feelings for multiple people. Scientists are contentiously studying the effect music has on our brains, evolution, and culture.
Asides from music, sound is a very fun thing to use. A common use of sound is for cleansing. It is a belief that sound actually helps get rid of stagnant energies in corners or deep inside walls where something like sage smoke couldn't reach. You could use a bell or you can even clap. There are plenty of YouTube videos out there for that.
So go out and experiment to see how music and sound helps you. It can work differently for people so see what you can discover for your own practices. Good luck!

Music is actually a pretty common method that you can use to raise energy for magical practiceand spellwork. I most commonly see drum beats used.The rhythmic drum beats act much the same way as chanting. The hypnotic effect they have can allow us to better focus on the magic we plan on working. The drum beats generate energy and this can then be built up and directed toward our goal.
Music, in general, can do much the same thing. Music can have an emotional effect on us and serve as a stimulus to generate emotions that we can put into our spells. Music can evoke feelings of happiness, sadness, and even anger. These emotions can then be used and directed to fuel spells.
Dance goes hand in hand with music and drumming. Play recorded drum beats or music as you dance around the circle or your sacred space. The combination can be used to raise and then direct energy for your spells. Raise the energy and then when you feel it reach its peak, direct it outward toward your intended goal, much like you would when creating a cone of power.
