Most of the teenagers have this habbit of listening to music while doing studies. Parents do always oppose such habbits but they simply says that it helps them concentrating to their topic, do you think its true??

It's one of my ritual actually,I'm not really smart so my brain needs a lot of condioning before studying some heavy stuff.So I listen to my favorite music first before and while studying.

well that really depends on your comforts. in my case i dont do both simultaneously not because my mom opposed such thing but because im totally disturbed myself. but others even study in the middle of the crowd with all the noise surroundings his/her ear. some smoke, some drink, some do thingas that they can learn more doing that way.. i say it really depends to you.

ya, it does, but mostly what is preferred is to make silent studies without any such noise or distraction, still so many of them follow all those habbits, so it really depends on individual, how he culminate his activities towards studies...

It depends on the person. I personally think that it works as a distraction. I cannot concentrate well while music is playing, unless it's too low. However, my elder brother used to study while music is on, and he was much better than me in studying. If you are not distracted by it, then there's no problem, but I would recommend only music (without singing) as songs will most propably distract you. It also depends on the subject you are studying, so if it's something involving drawing or maybe solving, then it might be OK too.

You are much more clear in this sontext then anyother , i may mark you as the best reply. You said true , that it depends on the music, either it should only be some music without any lyrics or if its has some lyrics , then it must be very slow in intensity...very true..keep earning

It is true, I do that all the time, math for example, gets much easier to concentrate on when you lock out everything. Though reading with music is not very good.

Generally, I can't concentrate on learning while I'm listening to the music. So I learn when there is silence in my room. I think that everything depends on what kind of a person you are. There are some people who can concentrate on many things simultaneously.

yah !! its like that, but all those people who can concentrate even in so many things can also not concentrate while music being played , if he/she is not a music lover. It depends on how much devoted a person is towards music....keep earning..

I remember when I was still in high school, classical music was piped in to the the classrooms during breaks (recess and lunch). Our teachers/school administration said it helps us study. It worked for me then. But now, I can't work (office work, i mean) while listening to music. I tend to just sing along and not work at all. haha! :P

well!! i think it matters from person to person. Some of the people can work more efficiently in music but few couldnt , it shows the devotiion of a person towards misic, even i also love music but sometimes i feel it so irritang that i switch it off and then again continue my work ahead...keep earning

i thinks listing music while studying is good but in selective subjects.like when i was doing maths i used to listen gazals or classicals or 1990 songs.but other subjects where i had to remember some things i can't concentrate but now i always listen music while studying cause i study on my PC so i keep lisiting music all the time and keep programming.......

I think when we're young we can multi task but as we age, we can't do as much. Or maybe that's just me. But I can be online and sing and listen to my music. :-)

I am way past a teenager! But I have studied this from my own perspective! I am a college student. I have found, from experience, that my test scores are HIGHER when I studied with music playing. My scores were lower when I hadn't been listening to music through the study session. I really enjoy A's, so I will keep on tunin' while crammin'.

it differs from person to person.some people can study more effectively while listening to music whereas some feel distracted by music when they are studying.for the remaining it makes no diference whether the music is on or off.i think it all depends on the psycology of one's brain.it all depends on how a person evalutes himself.if you think that you can study better with the music on,u will definitely do that.but if u think that music is a distraction while studying u would never be able to study with the music on.if u think that music makes no difference then it will definitely make no differece.it all depends on your acceptance or rejection.and when u start accepting or rejecting something then in due course of time it becomes your habit and it is very difficult to change habits.so if a person has the habit of studying with some music on then he knows that he had tried that someday for the first time and thought that it gave better results.but that was only an illusion of mind which he slowly made his habit.on the other hand a person who has alwaz tried to study in silence has the illusion that music distracts him while studying.thus it all depends on how u adapt urself to the illusions of the mind.

I believe so, I used to listen to music doing schoolwork, when I had problems concentrating do to worrying, or to much noise. So I turn the music on, eases stress, and makes homework not that bad. I like to listen to music in my head to put me in certain moods, like cheering myself up during relationship problems, or problems with people...just the right song can help...but watch out for songs like let the bodies hit the floor. LOL- it can make you feel hyped up, but when feeling weak it can make you feel like you can take on anything. It however depends on the person. I like to listen to certain mood classical music when doing certain things-because I know the advantage of it first hand...and require alot of music to breathe! LOl
