I try to mix it up, so when I get bored will listen to music for abit. Although generally think I concentrate better with no music.

Instrumental music works well for me to focus on what I need to do.

Try not to listen to songs with vocals, and if there are vocals, keep them incredibly simple. Personally I like both vocals and non-vocals when I write. But It is not a good habit

Hi there!
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.
All you have to do is to choose proper tags and start working with better flow.
Hope, that will help you.

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 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!

Instrumental music. I was told by a disabilities advisor that t can help with music. I do find it helps when typing. AND remember to take lots of breaks and have some nice herbal teas or something to hydrate you

All the time, I play my 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.
