Classical Music for Studying - Free Apps

Classical music for studying? The research might surprise you.

The Mozart Effect, the idea that classical music training actually improves intelligence, has been pretty thoroughly debunked.  Much of the research I have found also supports studying in silence.  However, classical music has been shown to reduce stress and improve sleep patterns. Additionally, some students find silence unnerving and may wish to block out distracting background noises. Educators are now even seeing classical music as part of 504 and IEP plans.

Final Thoughts

To clarify, classical music training provides many benefits, and I’m a big believer in music education. In regard to studying, most research recommends silence, so you don’t need to listen to classical music if silence works for you. But if you’re among those who find background music beneficial, the research is clear that classical music is among your best choices.
