Look what i have found, it is an infographic which offers playlists for writing different types of papers.
What do you think about it?
Actually there's no exact anser or the only proper opinion.
Some people do not like noisy music while others hate ambient.
This is why there's no perfect advice.
Here's a website, where you can choose a study playlist according to your mood and preferences.
I am easily distracted so usually I don't have music when I really need to concentrate. However, there are times when I am writing up something that I need to have some music playing.
I recently wrote up a large report over several days and worked through Wagner's Ring Cycle. I used the acts of the operas to indicate breaks (each act is approximately 1 hour to 1 hour 15 minutes).
I like to listen to Beethoven's 9 symphonies when reading (40 minutes to an hour each).
I don't usually, but if I do then it's classical music lol :)
Yes, I would like to listen music while i am writing my lesson or essay. I can make good concentration with listen music.
I used to use music during exam time at undergraduate level as a study aid. For example, if I was studying for a history-style module, I listened to 'Coldplay' and in the exam, humming their songs would help me remember what I had been revising. So listening to music always helps me study!
All the time, I play my last.fm radio stream at work, and when writing I compile a list of albums. I find post-rock, minimal-techno and minimal-house works for me. It's a matter of personal preference.
I listen to music not only while writing essay. I listen to music while walking with my dog while going home from a walk. While sitting home and doing some homework tasks or just doing nothing. I like to listen to music especially when I am on the bus or a train riding somewhere far, really far. Also, I listen to music when I am at the gym or when I am going to buy something. I don't even remember the last day when I left home without my earphones. And there are no situations music is annoying for me.
