You should be able to from the app itself. Have you tried? For hangouts or facebook messenger you can mute notifications, but not sure how it behaves while listening to music.

So you basically want something to return to normal on it's own?

I have heard from someone about tasker, give it a try. If not, the only option would be enabling do not disturb manually.

I am guessing you are playing music wirelessly to a bluetooth speaker?

 

If so then you can try the Google Cast protocol, any notifications will still be played on the phone while the music goes to the speakers.
