Listening music while studying

  1. Aug 18, 2010 #1
    I think it's a good idea to listen music while you study. Of course, when you live in a house with extremely noise from the road, is better to listen music.
    The issue is, what kind of music help you to keep you concentrated?

    I can listen a wide range of music (instrumental): Classical music, jazz, funk, soul, ethinc, traditional, country, neoclassical metal, rock...

    I like jazz and i think this kind of music is ideal for someone who would like to listen while study.

    Years ago i had red somewhere that jazz tracks have a lot of scales and "green notes". There is not a whole track which is played in D major or G minor ect and while you listen, this has an influence on mind and does not keep your mind concentrated to study. Is it true?

    What kind of music do you recommend for better results while studying?

    I like listening to stuff that I know and can listen to repeatedly - like my favourites list on youtube - it just plays itself again and again, and cos I know the songs, I can kind of ignore them and focus on my work. Catchy stuff that you can sing along to is also good. or a radio station in a foreign language - you can enjoy the music without being distracted by the talking.
