There have been many studies about the impact of music on the brain. Some recent studies suggest that participating in music programs is good for students. Music appears to have a positive effect on reading and math achievement.
But what about listening to music while studying? Lots of students like to do it, but one study suggests that listening to music while studying isn't helpful, because the music causes a distraction. So music can be a good thing--but only when used properly. What do you think? Does music affect your studies?
