Sounds of Concentration

“Don’t listen to music while studying, you’ll get distracted!”

I can’t count how many times I’ve heard this phrase – from teachers to parents to tutors, it seems that everybody believes that music and sounds¬†make you counterproductive. However, I find this to be completely untrue. Though the method of concentration varies from person to person, I find listening to “elevator music” or “white noise” type sounds helps me study better.*

Below are a few links that I use:

*There are scientific articles debating for music and against music while studying which I won’t delve into since it honestly depends on the type of person.
