What kind of music to study to?

Probably going to laugh, but I study to Mozart.


Something like this really puts me into a trance of 'study mode'

_____

I tried studying to frequency waves and read this whole article on how it can benefit productivity.

I didn't really like it though. Felt like it put me to sleep. Less energy and motivation was my response to it.

EDM music can be good but a lot of the times the synth it just too catchy and it distracts me. It's like you are constantly trying to mentally anticipate the bass drop lol. Artist like blackmil are much more soothing though.

Any lyrical type of music is just terrible for studying in my opinion. Although I find country pretty relaxing a lot. Hip hop.. fuck no lmao. I love hip hop but not for studying. Any type of rock is in the same category.

  • Classical music. Mozart sort of stuff

What Guys Said 16

  • I've also seen previous studies though where it was actually just music in general that caused an increase in memory. Likewise, I want to say that the increase happens if you listen to it before test taking (so it can't distract you and negate the effects). There was a person in my psych class that actually gave a presentation over this topic today, coincidentally.

    That being said, I also heard in a previous psych class I took that music is alright with studying... unless it has lyrics. Lyrics will actually cause the brain to try process the words with multitask comprehension and make reading, typing, or anything with words much harder.

    I usually don't study with music since it may distract me. That being said, I've found that it helps for cranking through all nighters. I listen to instrumental metal/jazz hybrid thing (aka Animals As Leaders). It keeps me awake but doesn't have lyrics so it doesn't hurt my attention too much.

    This music makes me feel like this exam will be the last I will ever take so I am fighting to study and understand and complete the homework. It makes me feel powerful like a god, like an unstoppable study machine.

    Jk I dont study, but when I try, I listen to that and it works.
