My question is, does classical music distract from their learning?
~ Baffled about Bach, Fort Mc Murray, Alberta Canada This is a great question – and one in which I join you as someone who listens to classical music and Italian opera when studying or writing.
Also, the person’s tolerance level to noise and whether they use it progressively can determine whether they listen to music while studying.
Studying should not be based off other peoples’ opinions of how study.
While sitting down to study in the Findlay Commons I look around and notice all the different study habits between students.
A certain study habit is more effective for someone in comparison to others because all brains work differently when trying to integrate memorization or muscle memory.
But the medium (the type of media, such as TV, music, video games, etc.) and the content to which we are exposed makes a big difference in how much it distracts.
Studies show that watching a movie or TV show while doing homework results in homework that has more mistakes and takes longer to complete.
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.
