Hi everyone! I hope you’re doing well! Today I’m including a guest post by blogger David Milsont. David introduces a few genres of music to help students and others study important terms and information.

No matter what’s being studying, one cannot gain 100 percent of knowledge until the info. is fully concentrated on. Paying complete attention is a big problem for students. People use various techniques to deal with this issue. Some research studies say listening to music helps people concentrate on tasks.

One can easily get frustrated when spending long hours studying a particular subject or topic. In this case, a lot of people find music very helpful. If one studies with some sort of background music in place, one can easily manage to keep away from different types of disturbing sounds. It’ll be easier to focus on a book for a longer period of time. Here’s some music genres studies recommend using while studying:

Instrumental Music

Instrumental music does not require a singer or lyricist. It’s entirely produced with the support of musical instruments. It provides tremendous relaxation and entertainment. This type of music is really peaceful and helps minimize frustration. It also allows a person to effectively focus on studies.

Classical Music

Classical music has tremendous power when it comes to making a person focus on work. Yes that’s correct, it’s one of the best study companions that helps sharpen the brain. One of the best things about classical music is that it never distracts someone from studying and performing tasks. It’s a great source of entertainment that keeps one happy and entertained.


In order to concentrate, one needs to be calm and relaxed. A tense person with boiling frustration levels cannot effectively work. In order to keep one’s temper under control, listening to jazz music helps. If you want to refresh yourself, play Jazz music in the background. One should also play Jazz music before studying.

Experts say learning Jazz helps improve a wide range of tasks like cognitive skills. Jazz music can be learned from academics at the New York Jazz Academy. The academy teaches music lessons to people of all ages with varied interest levels.

Funk Music

Aside from jazz, instrumental and classical music, Funk is also a music genre that improves efficiency. Funk is a musical composition that uses lots of musical instruments. The sounds help a person’s mind relax which eventually helps increase his or her concentration.

Funk developed in the 1960’s. Since then, music lovers from around the world have enjoyed it. When playing this type of music, it makes some feel happy and energetic. Thus, it enhances enthusiasm towards work.

  1. Dear Lisa,
    Thanks for this excellent interview! Definitely music is very soothing while studying anything regardless of what the discipline is. You might know Professor Lesser at UTEP who is a mathematician but using music to motivate learning mathematics/statistics. Here is a link about Professor Lesser: . He won awards for educational songs! Kudos to David Milsont and people like him who are giving exceptional thoughts to make education more effective as well as fun.

    Have a wonderful Friday and a great weekend!
