Some people like listening to music when they study and it can help them concentrate. But if music distracts you, turn it off while you study or listen to music without words. Listen to your favourite music during your breaks. Try studying with music on and without music, to see how you study better. You might find that a certain type of music helps your concentration.

Sometimes I listen to the music while learning but it usually distracts me and I start dancing and jamming to my favourite song all over the room.

i like listening to music but it doesn't help me concentrate..because i start singing and :(..bad news for me then :P ... anyway i think that the best is to concentrate in your studies than to listen to music. this way you can finish faster and then you can listen to music comfortable. but sometimes i agree music helps us to feel better. To sum up classic music is the best to listen when your studying but better concentrate and finish as fast as u can.
ANYWAY.PEOPLE ARE DIFFERENT SO THEY LIKE DIFFERENT THINGS. THIS IS THE BEST PART OF OURS
BEING DIFFERENT.!!!

Personally, I listen to music when I study. Some people say it's distracting, but for me it's not. I don't listen to music only when I feel I have to pronounce everything I learn; by the way, this is also a great way to study!

Actually I have tried to study with listening to music at the same time ,but it wasn't helpful!
I've realized that I will loose concentration if I listened to music while studying.But with that it may be a useful way to studying to others .

Hi everyone ,I made a mistake in the first comment.The last word is advices .It's wrong because there are some nouns aren't used in the plural as advice ,information ,news,work ,money,progress,knowledge , furniture,scenery ,luggage and machinery.When only one thing is meant we can say a piece of advice ,information ,news.......etc.
The edit will be ( A big thank for your precious piece of advice )
Nobody is flawless !!
The source: common mistakes in English 5th edition ...such a helpful book !

What a great, clear explanation of uncountable nouns. One more example? We can't say

  • I've got three homeworks to do.

but we CAN say

  • I've got three pieces of homework to do. 

Big thanks to you, Blue sea. You would make a great teacher when you're older! Any other books you recommend?

I think that listening to music when you study can have a beneficial effect. I sometimes listen to music too when I study. But I usually dont play music when I study maths or physics, because I need 100% focus on that subject. Listening to music while studying draws your attention away if you like it or not. It's just how brain works I suppose.
My favourite music when I study: reggae, soft rock and chill out. I know, 3 different genres, but in my case, such music is fun and helpful for studying ;)
This article is useful too: Can music help you study? Maybe you can get some additional info.

Regards,
Luxy

I prefer the classical one such as Beethoven's symphonies .This type really helps to concentrate but music with words distracts me..... Big thank to you for your precious advices .

Good advice Blue Sea.  When studying or revising, classical music is much better than pop music!
