A STUDENT'S GUIDE TO MUSIC FOR STUDYING



 "Where words fail, music speaks". Hans Christian Anderson said that. Music can be used for many occasions. I'll admit that I didn't use to be a big fan of music. In fact, I used to think that it hindered concentration when played alongside activities and I certainly wouldn't haven't chosen to listen to it when I was studying. However, as the years have progressed, my thoughts of music listening have grown with them and I now I would even agree it can aid studying. In this post, I will go into what music worked for me when I was studying for my A-Levels. 


When it's a Struggle

Sometimes you'll find you're just not in the mood to revise for that upcoming test on Monday morning! On this occasion, I enlisted the help of upbeat music. If you're in that mood where picking up the textbook makes you want to throw it out of the window, put on some light-hearted music to enjoy. I think this is great because it not only boosts your mood and helps improve motivation. It's almost like you're rewarding yourself for studying before you're even finished.

One of my personal favourites at the minute is The Greatest Showman soundtrack.

Time to Focus

Personally, I love classical music. I find that sometimes when I was trying to get homework done, I found other types of music too distracting. I was too busy singing along and listening to the lyrics (probably dancing too!). Classical music was great for these moments, I found it especially helpful when trying to solve hard problems or write an essay I was struggling on. Mozart was one of my favourites as it's jolly and upbeat, which I found enjoyable, whilst still being calming. Whenever I use to turn this music on I recognized it as my 'study music' which made me start revising.

This is one of my favourites for those times: Mozart Classical Piano

Other places also have good playlists organised for different classical composers, such as Beethoven or Bach.

If you're unsure

If you're not quite sure what is going to help your revision session, I would recommend searching for studying playlists online, giving them a listen and seeing what takes your fancy. Extra bonus -  you might find a few new songs to add to your favourites.

Try something like this: Stress-free Studying
