The Impact of Music on Learning

Why is it that some prefer to study with classical music playing in the background while others soothing when working on difficult Math exercises ? What is it that makes the human brain feel entertained when listening to music ? Do we have special neurons that interpret musical signals and thus fires up dopamine into different areas of our brain making us feel relaxed ?

It is really amazing that though we have completely different musical tastes we probably all agree that music is entertaining . Lena created and shared with us this wonderful graphic mapping the effect of music on learning. I really enjoyed reading every bit of it and here are some of the facts that jumped out to me :

  • Jazz is not only viewed as an alternative to classical, but one study revealed that students are more productive when listening to jazz.
  • Studies have shown that three or four rhythm repetitions may cause the mind to shut down or enter a state of sub-conscious thinking.
