How music affects learning and memorization

    When it comes to music what come first into our mind and thoughts is just emotions. It could be sadness or even happiness as this depends with the singer or the song composer.As we all know music plays a very important role in our livelihood. What is life without music by the way? Imagine a life without any music, its meaningless right?Now if you ask me I would not hesitate to give you an answer that life without music is just living to eat while it’s the other way round, we eat to live.

    Music is not something new 
    in thus generation; its interconnection with society can even be seen throughout history.Every known culture on the earth has music and when i say this i cannot forget the Indian culture kind of music. They just know how to do it.

    Music seems to be one of the basic actions of humans. However, early music was not handed down from generation to generation or recorded. Hence, there is no official record of prehistoric music. Even so, there is evidence of prehistoric music from the findings of flutes carved from bones.

    The influence of music on society can be clearly seen from modern history and a good example is seen in Thomas Jefferson when he could not figure out the rights words to write when he was writing the Declaration of Independent.

    Bodily Responses to Music
    In general, responses to music are able to be observed. It has been proven that music influences humans both in good and bad ways. These effects are instant and long lasting. Music is thought to link all of the emotional, spiritual, and physical elements of the universe.

    Music can actually be used to change an individual's mood, and has been found to cause like physical responses in many people simultaneously. Music also has the ability to strengthen or weaken emotions from a particular event such as a funeral or let's say it can break you down when you are heartbroken and at the same time cheer you up.The way people respond to music is very different in that the level of musicianship of the performer and the listener as well as the manner in which a piece is performed affects the experience of music.

    An experienced and accomplished musician might hear and feel a piece of music in a totally different way than a non-musician or beginner. This is why two accounts of the same piece of music can contradict themselves.By all of these we can finally say that the power music has a very powerful effect on our memorization and learning in that learning potential can be increased by a minimum of five times by using this 60 beats per minute music.

    In many cases, we have seen and witnessed many people reaching for a pair of headphones as the first step in studying or completing class work which actually works but because people are created with different attitudes and characters other people will prefer peace and quiet with no audible distractions at all.Understanding how music affects mood and memory can help you determine when music is appropriate during your studies and how it affects your long-term results to use this tool to its fullest as you study for your exams.

    From my own perspective of music and learning, If you are feeling low, bored and you don't really want to study, I would to encourage you to listen to music during studies and this is because even if you choose going to a peaceful environment you will just end up dozing off.

    Music will improve your mental thoughts by activating the brain and promoting a more creative mental environment.According studies it has been found that listening to music you enjoy can boost your mood, which intensifies mental focus and improves willpower to keep you successfully on task, even when you’d rather be doing something else.

    Now you can understand the reason why I encouraged you to listen to music while studying, pulling on a pair of headphones is no be big deal at all. It can also be beneficial helping you to create a more peaceful and personalized environment free of distractions.Additionally, music can help you stay focused on repetitive-type tasks, improving your efficiency and helping you to complete more studying in less time when you feel energized and excited about your work.

    Finding the right music that inspires and cheers you up without distracting you from your studies can be extremely beneficial, especially if you are struggling to find the time or the motivation to hit the books.Music can also have a clear positive effect on concentration and academic performance but this is when you consider and limit the type of music you are listening to while studying.

    The type of music you listen to can affect your concentration, most people find that vocal music is more distracting than helpful, particularly when trying to memorize lists, orders, and other information by rote memory. In these cases, the lyrics act to confuse the brain while it is also trying to process very specific input, making it more difficult to categorize the information you are studying. This is hence the rhythm of the music, is also an important aspect of music to study when looking at responses to music in that there are some rhythms (hard) that can be resisted by body reactions and response to it.

    Responses to music are easy to be detected in the human body. Classical music from the baroque period causes the heart beat and pulse rate to relax to the beat of the music. As the body becomes relaxed and alert, the mind is able to concentrate more easily.Listening to the same music while you study and during your exam produces the most beneficial effect, but this is not always possible. Unless you will be taking your exam at home, you should also take some time to study in a quiet, classroom-like environment as well to improve your results.

    Good study habits will set the stage for success in school and beyond as you prepare for a career.
