Listen to classical music while studying

Listening to classical music is another way to help you focus when studying. Dr. Masha Godkin, professor at Northcentral University, has researched the effects of music on our brains. She found that classical music can take you from the beta brainwave state to the deeper alpha state, and even further to the theta state. According to Dr. Godkin, the ability of music to stimulate both sides of the brain is why music helps you focus and also improves your memory. Classical music with a fast tempo, such as Beethoven’s Für Elise, is effective in helping students to concentrate and remember more information.
