For many different people across the world, Music is one of the most integral parts of their day, myself included.
Even as I am creating this, I have music playing in the background.
Using observation, are we able to find convincing evidence that Music helps us focus and study more effectively?
Before delving into the specifics, there are two general ideas to keep in the back of your head while we progress:
In general, listening to Music has a plethora of different, positive effects on the human body. Some of these positive effects include:
Now for the main question: Does Music really help us study better? Yes and no.
Music, depending on what it is that you are studying, can either help you or restrict you. For example, if you are trying to memorize certain terms for a biology class, having music in the background can be very helpful.
However, if you were reading a novel or trying to interpret a specific text, having music in the background can end up being more of a distraction than a tool for success.
The study revealed that although there were a couple of people that got distracted, the majority of the classroom was able to improve as a result of there being background music.
The study did in fact reveal that by listening to classical music, there was a significant improvement in performance on these memory-based tasks.
Circling back to the Background Information, it should be noted that although music is seen to improve studying for groups of people OVERALL, that does not mean that it will help every single person.
This means that you should try it for yourself! If you are able to focus on your work more easily as a result of background music playing in the background, then do it! Otherwise, make sure to create the most optimal work environment for yourself.
However, with the majority in mind, there is convincing evidence to show that Music does help you study better.
