Listening to music has many benefits to student learning. Music allows students to be more focused on what they’re doing to get it done more efficiently.

A Stanford study shows that “music engages areas of the brain which are involved with paying attention, making predictions and updating events in our memory.”

When students are listening to music, they have less of a tendency to talk to the people next to them because they are so focused on the song that is playing.

A Florida University study had linked music to memory and emotion. Meaning that if you are listening to a certain song while doing an assignment, you will most likely link that assignment to the specific song, which will help you remember what you learned.

Music is a great benefit to students who have trouble focusing, and students who have trouble studying for tests and quizzes.
