Music simply does not mean the musical notes. It also compromises of vibrations and sensations. Due to this property of music, it has been used for medical purposes for a long period of time. Music is not only for relishing but heals us too. This method of using music as therapy is called music therapy.
What if we listen to a particular amount of music a lot and get our chakras overcharged? There is no need to be concerned about exposing your body to too much of a particular sound when you try to achieve balance. Your body will absorb as much as it needs and no more. It is like a bucket of water that will simply overflow when it is at its capacity. Your body will usually let you know when it has absorbed enough of a particular sound. You simply will not have a desire for more.
