Study Like A Pro - Music To Keep You Motivated

    Press/Media: Expert Comment

    Description

    Professor of Music at the University of Huddersfield, Dr. Rupert Till has develop the "Study Like A Pro" playlist in partnership with Pro Plus to help students stay alert and focused throughout their studies.

    Lower tempo music can achieve something quite different, reducing tension, entraining your body, even your heartbeat, to a lower speed when listening to chilled out music. For anything mathematical, calming background music seems to work, as do lyrics, so choosing songs can be good. Extroverts it seems respond better to familiar music, introverts might want something new. The research shows that silence is worse than vocal or instrumental music when working with pictures, so for art homework or graphic design music is a must. If for your music is distracting, turn it off, but it's at least worth trying working with music playing. The work might take longer, but you might get more done, and be happier while you are doing it.
