Study and music?

With children in lockdown for that little bit longer, children may be getting restless and not want to study for long periods.

Music can be a tool that can be used to create a calm atmosphere in the household. Of course, the music needs to be right! Music with lots of lyrics or particularly upbeat music like chart music can distract and have the opposite effect to what an instrumental piece would achieve.

Here is a link to a website which explains more about the effect of music and studying:

Creating a happy study place is beneficial and music can aid that. Remember that everyone is different and what works for one student may not work for another. I used music to help me focus on my dissertation as part of my degree.

Relaxing music that I recommend is Ludovico Einaudi. No lyrics. Just piano instrumentals.
