Listening to Music While Doing Homework/Studying Lead To Better Results?

Instrumental Music

❶Some people succeed when put in specific scenarios, and one scenario I will never find useful is music during study hours, but people are different and results vary. Since I never understood the meaning for this interesting study habit, I researched whether music leads to better results for those that listen to it.

It always seems to distract. Now I know that I am not the only one. Nice topic, I liked the way you started with questions that you sort of answered at the end. Good, informative sources as well. Do you prefer to study with music? Or since you are a movie buff with a movie going on in the background?

Hi Margaret, glad I could help! As for me, I do like having music on, but I prefer instrumental music when I study. As I mentioned in my post, movie scores work pretty well for me, usually. Another thing I think would be an interesting research topic would be looking at whether the language the vocal music is in will have an effect.

Unfortunately I have to save my movie watching for when my homework is done! Sheela, Too bad, for me it is the other way around.

I can put on a good marathon and do lots of homework admittedly not as quickly as without tv. I would like to see more research into this as well. Hi Sheela, In school I found I could study better without music. TV is a different story. I never work in front of a TV, but I can read on one end of the couch while my husband watches TV from the other. You all need to assess whether writing in first person adds anything to the post.

I think that assessing whether writing in the first person adds to a post is very helpful advice. But given that there is still a trend toward more personal writing styles, and that blogs are by their nature personal, I wonder whether you could say more about how you would gauge whether to write in first person or not. Funny but still rings true.

When we were kids, my dad always used to get angry at my brother and me because we could never study without music running in the background, sometimes it was TV!!

As you said Sheela, this depends on person to person. I guess it depends whether you want to study with music in the background, or listen to music with a book in front of you! I lison to his songs in all my classes and even gym. I need his songs to help me get through the long time of homework.

Hunter hayes helps me alot try his songs out. I like to consider music a mild stimulant and an entertainment. Just for a little perspective I used to work in isolation on a mine site and the music was the only thing that could keep me sane. You must admit though now days everyone is a bit of a sensation seeker eg.

All in all I think it comes down to whether the person has grown up their whole life listening to music and studying. Hey People, I was just reading your project and turns out I did something similar this year for Science Fair. It also turns out We both got the same results! I will soon update a website and give it to you for more info and research. I just have one question though, Was the testing all performed on the same age group of people or were there different people involved?

I am so glad we have gotten the same results. If you are directly looking into doing this, maybe you are starting a new label or just want to start producing Reggae this article will tell you a bit more about why DUBTurbo is proving so popular.

When you use Vuze, you will then be able to download the Dub Turbo torrent file to your laptop or desktop. I will look on and await some results before i say anything. I am a college student, recently diagnosed with ADD. I find that music has a range of varying and strange effects on me. For one, I simply cannot count higher than either 4 or 8 it depends while listening to music blame band and dance for that.

It also messes with my typing speed — I pretty much have to try to type to the beat or it feels weird. While sitting down to study in the Findlay Commons I look around and notice all the different study habits between students. A study shows the most effective study habits include practicing by yourself, memory games, and going to your own quiet place. Those ways are typically the way I study.

But, when I walk around the commons I notice more people than not wearing headphones and studying. I never really understood the reasoning of listening to music while studying because it is another voice in your head that takes away the sole purpose of memorization. Since I never understood the meaning for this interesting study habit, I researched whether music leads to better results for those that listen to it. I tried to listen to music while studying and could not focus on the task at hand.

But, I found a flaw in there correlation with Mozarts Effect. I walked up to 10 different kids in the Findlay commons that were studying for a quiz or midterm and listening to music.

I proceeded to ask them what genre of music they were listening to and whom. Another study done also proves that listening to music can effect studying. But, the studying must be an organizational related study. The music genre does not matter, the sound effects the performance in itself.

The studies shown prove that music can be both beneficial and digressive. Differentiating between the type of study someone is engaged in plays a key factor. There is no better way to study but your own because different study habits make one more comfortable in comparison to others.

This study shows that I should not be so quick to judge other students and how they study because maybe they find it beneficial. Some people succeed when put in specific scenarios, and one scenario I will never find useful is music during study hours, but people are different and results vary.

While studying, some people prefer to listen to music. Others need total silence, it just depends on who you are and what helps you study. The reason why some people need to listen to music is to either crete a background noise, or to relax them and lower stress levels. It has been proven that stress levels are decreased by music.

The student could possibly be stressed out over what he or she is studying for, and the music would bring that stress level back down.

The music just creates this calm throughout their body and enables them to concentrate extremely hard on what they are doing. Aside from making them feel better, the music will block out excess noise in the room from other students whispering to each other or the rustling of papers. These are all the positive effects music should have on studying. There is no way it can harm the others around them, who are probably too focused with their own work to notice them anyway.

Earlier in the blog period, I created a similar blog asking the same question. This is a topic that generally interests me as I alway do my homework with music playing in the background.

However, I always want to make sure that I am working in an efficient manner.
