5 Benefits of Listening to Music While Studying

It has become increasingly common to see libraries filled with students wearing headphones while studying or reading. But, if that’s not your case, here’s a list of reasons why you should give it a try!

— November 12th, 2020

Here are five benefits of listening to music while studying:

I) Makes your Studying Fun

While the jury is still out on whether hearing to music can benefit everyone or just a particular type of person, there’s no doubt that university life will be a lot duller and tedious without it.

Plus, listening to music has been scientifically proven to release dopamine, a chemical that makes a person feel happier, more motivated, and relaxed.

2) Better Visualization

There’s been a lot of discussion on the Mozart Effect’s accuracy, a popular theory in the nineties that claimed that listening to Mozart will make you smarter. 

However, there is compelling data out there, suggesting that classical music can improve spatial-temporal reasoning or the ability to manipulate shapes mentally – albeit for a limited time. 

3) Brain Exercising

Like any other organ in the body, the brain grows old too, and without proper maintenance, it can age very badly.

Williams Taylor, from Innovative SEO, says, “There are many ways to take care of the brain like reading, solving puzzles, and writing but listening to music is perhaps the easiest and most convenient one.”

4)  Makes you Less Anxious

A new survey by YouGov showed that 1 in every 4 students suffers from mental health problems. Among those who participated, anxiety and stress seem to be the most commonplace, with 71% citing studying as the main stress source. 

According to research done by Cambridge University Professors Akeem Sule and Becky Inkster, hip-hop music provides an uplifting effect to its listeners that can help them accept, manage, and deal better with mental health issues. And even though rap might not be everyone’s cup of tea, it doesn’t hurt to try new things that could positively impact your mental health. 

5) Memory Improvement

Ever wondered why it’s easier to memorize the lyrics of Eminem’s Lose Yourself than the table of chemical elements? That’s because your brain looks for patterns to understand better, recall, and process information. 

The Germans call, der Ohrwurm, meaning ‘musical itch,’ or more popularly known as the earworm. Coined in 1979 by psychiatrist Cornelius Eckert, earworm occurs when a part of the song gets stuck in your head for an extended period of time (we’re talking days and weeks here), and you can’t get it out. Incidentally, this is also one way of enhancing your brain’s memory, which is why some language courses are set to music since it’s easier to remember information when it’s embedded within a pattern of ear-catching melodies.

I love how Marcos lets me learn so many songs, not just one! I like how he gives me compliments. It’s really fun when Marcos does the bass clef with the left hand and I get to make up my own song that goes with it for a warm up. It’s fun because I get to make up my own songs. I love the sound of the piano!

I really like that we get to pick what songs we want to learn in Marcos’s guitar class. I also love that he is compassionate and lets us progress at our own pace. Marcos knows EVERYTHING about instruments, and I’m glad he can share some of it with me. I’m glad that I get to learn how to read, write, and play music for the guitar. It is a lot of fun when Marcos and I play the guitar together!

Both of my children love their music lessons with Marcos. They look forward to their music lessons each week and come home eager to practice their new pieces. I especially love that he teaches them to compose their own pieces and inspires their musical creativity. Marcos is always positive and encouraging with my children, and he has a knack for bringing out their best. I highly recommend 123 Rock to anyone looking for a music teacher!
