It seems like listening to music whiling walking, studying or reading has became the most popular trend in university campuses because you can see students with earphones or headphones on everywhere whether it is in the library or in the dining halls. And I am definitely in this category right now especially after starting college.
It is really hard to say whether it is good or not to listen to music while doing something else. First of all, it has to depends on what type of music you are listening to. Many researchers believe the “Mozart Effect” which shows that it helps students memorizing things better while listening to music, and I have asked so many of my friends and most of them said that they can not studying without listening to some music. But according to Mozart’s music, I believe most of us do not listen to his music. Instead, we listen to pop music or urban music such as my favorite rapper Drake‘s music! So the changing of different types of music that we listen to compared with Mozart’s music, the result of Mozart Effect must have changed.
I personality love to listen to music while studying because music brings back my mind and make me only focus on studying. It may sounds really weird, but I have at least five playlists prepared for studying, and I play different kind of songs depends on my mood!
