Default Classical music helps with revision?

Hi,

Does it help other people listening to Classical music during exam times and whilst revising?? I actually find it hard to concentrate whilst listening to any music...

Peace out!

I think listening to classical music helps you do anything, really. Just pick a mood, mission, or situation, and chances are there's a track for it. See: movie soundtracks.

I can't listen to music usually when working or having to apply my mind to a task involving thinking in words (ie I can operate things, do labour tasks but I can't write or construct thoughts as well) but I can with classical music.

However I find listening to classical music that I'm very familiar with, like Beethoven or Schubert symphonies, distracting because I can't help but let my mind follow the music as it goes.

Even music I'm not familiar with can distract me if it's really good and fun! I can't always concentrate when I'm listening to Haydn that I've not heard before because I'm always thinking "my my well this is awesome!"

I can and do listen to SOME music while working on detailed things. I've been editing scores for a composer across town lately, and listening to a lot of Philip Glass and Steve Reich-esque musics, Brian Eno, etc. I couldn't possibly focus on anything listening to Xanikis or Debussy or something though.

But yes, anything which is continuous and repetitive is a great background to monotonous yet focused work. For me.

I think it also depends on which composer you are listening to... For me to be able to concentrate I should have something calming and light, Vivaldi for example.

As classical music is the best form of peaceful music in this world, it helps to ease tension, bring down the blood pressure level and gives peace of mind. Many have the habit to listen to music while studying but follow this procedure while you are studying in form of writing or working out mathematical problems. This will be disturbing while you read something. So you have to understand when to listen to music while doing your studies. Moreover during exams if you follow the correct way which will not disturb you in the studies, you should follow the way as you have to understand that is your exam and you have to do well in that.

I always listen to classical music whenever I study or whenever I need to take a "vocal break".
