Can music listening decrease a patient's anxiety before surgery? The investigators hypothesize that music listening will decrease a patient's pre-operative anxiety significantly more than no music listening.
The investigators aim to see if additional variables affect a patient's anxiety and response to music listening, such as demographic factors (age, race, prior surgical experience, type of surgery planned) and music background (experience playing a musical instrument, music listening habits). The investigators also aim to see if pre-operative music listening is associated with improved patient satisfaction.

Does music listening decrease preoperative anxiety in women who are scheduled for pelvic reconstructive surgery? Participants will be approached on the day of pelvic reconstructive surgery while they wait in the pre-operative area for surgery. For the sake of not disrupting the flow of the surgery schedule, patients will be consented approximately 45 minutes before the anticipated start time of surgery. If patient agrees to participate, they will be consented and evaluated for eligibility. Once informed consent is obtained, the patient will be randomized to either the music listening group or the control group. All patients will be asked to complete a STAI-Y1 and demographics questionnaire while awaiting surgery. Those in the music listening group will be asked to answer additional questions regarding their background and experience with music.
Participants in the control group will complete another STAI-Y1 questionnaire after 30 minutes of waiting. At the patient's routine 6 weeks postoperative visit, she will be asked to rate her overall satisfaction with her surgery and her satisfaction with the preoperative experience.
Music listening group:
The music listening group will be given a set of noise canceling headphones and an MP3 player with multiple tracks representing different music genres to use while in preoperative area. Patients will be given a handout listing the music genre types and asked to circle which music type they listened to during the study. Genre types include classical instrumental, classical piano, smooth jazz, gospel, and new age. After 30 minutes, patients will be asked to complete another STAI-Y1 questionnaire. They will be given the option to continue listening to music up until the time of surgery; however no additional STAI-Y1 questionnaires will be administered. Headphones and the MP3 player will be taken from the patient as she is being transported to the operating room. The headphones and MP3 player will be cleaned with alcohol wipes and reused for other participants in the study.
At the patient's routine 6 weeks postoperative visit, she will be asked to rate her overall satisfaction with her surgery, her satisfaction with the preoperative experience, and whether she would recommend pre-operative music listening to others.

waiting in preoperative area without music listening.
Active Comparator: Music Listening Group
The music listening group will be given a set of noise canceling headphones and an MP3 player with multiple tracks representing different music genres to use while in preoperative area.
Other: Music Listening Group
Waiting in preoperative area with music listening.
- Preoperative Anxiety [ Time Frame: Day 1: 30 minutes ]The primary variable is anxiety score measured by the State-Trait Anxiety Inventory form Y1 (STAI-Y1) The STAI-Y1 is a 20 item questionnaire which asks subject to rate feelings with a 1-4 pt scale where 1 indicates "not at all" and 4 indicated "very much so". (Range of score 20-80) Higher score equals more anxiety.
