Alpha Music refers to music that initiates a light state of relaxation, namely the Alpha Brain Wave State Relaxation..
Often the term AlphaMusic is used instead of:
Relaxation Music - Ambient music - Atmospheric Music - Chill-Out Music, or simply pleasant non-intruding Background Music.
Alpha Music's Aim is to stimulate the right side of the brain to help you drift into an alpha state of mind.
The best Music for this purpose is written in 60 beat per Minute.
A mind in alpha is a relaxed mind, free
of stress and tension.
The Alpha Wave has a frequency from 7 to 14 cycles per sec.
This is the State of Mind where you are in a "relaxed alertness". You are calm and peaceful, with clear creative thinking. Ideas, solutions and intuitive breakthrough.
Studying is easy. This is the State of Mind, where you can reach your full potential.
And by the way, this is also the State of Mind, where
your Body is Regenerating itself,
with an increase in health and vitality. (More about this ... click > Article - Alpha Music )

Here are some more similar Music Genre descriptions:
Ambient Music is like Alpha Music, but not specifically to stimulate your right side of the brain or written in a 60 beat per minute speed.
Ambient, coming from the word ambience, means basically to create an ambience, and it has a few sub-categories, such as:
Ambient dub - Ambient electronica - Ambient house - Ambient groove -
Ambient techno - Ambient trance - and probably more.
Ambient music evolved from early 20th century forms of semi-audible music, from the impressionism of Erik Satie, through musique concrete and the minimalism of Terry Riley and Philip Glass, and Brian Eno's deliberate sub-audible approach.
Later developments found the dreamy elements of ambient music applied to some forms of rhythmic music presented in chill-out rooms at raves and other dance events.
The primary feature of Ambient Music is intended to drift in and out of the listener's awareness while
creating its effect on the listener's consciousness.
Ambient dub involves Jamaican sound artists with DJ inspired ambient electronica, complete with all the inherent drop-outs, echo, equalization and psychedelic electronic effects.
Organic Ambient music is characterised by integration of electronic, elect and acoustic musical instruments, and tends to incorporate influences from world music, especially drone instruments and hand percussion.
Space music, can be called Ambient music as well, as certain characteristics are in common to create the experience of contemplative spaciousness.
Easy Listening and Atmospheric Music may fall into this category as well.
Acoustic Music refers to music that solely or primarily uses acoustic instruments, as opposed to electric or electronic instruments.
Almost all musical instruments and all music obviously, have traditionally been acoustic, but often the term is used for specific music, such as acoustic guitar music.
Any sound produced by electronic means is not acoustic.
Most modern music is not acoustic unless specifically named as acoustic or as unplugged,
which are acoustic performances by artists who usually rely on electronic instruments.
Acoustic music may still be amplified using electronic amplifiers.
However, these amplification devices must be separate from the amplified instrument and need to reproduce its natural sound accurately.
