Classes and MusicMusic is a huge part of today’s society, but in class, it can be considered a distraction. In actuality, music is very useful for students because it’s relaxing, it makes people more productive, and it encourages your brain to learn. Everyone has different learning styles when it comes to school; for some people, music is a necessity to work well in crowded environments, so why not let them listen to it in class?The first reason music should be allowed in class is that it is clinically proven to relax you and relieve stress. Through research at Stanford University, scientists have discovered that listening to music can affect how the brain functions to almost the same amount as the medication someone would take. Music is also clinically known as a well-established stress-management tool all over the world, due to its connection with us and our emotions. Many people think of music as a distraction and even though it can, it also promotes productivity because it’s reducing your stress. Relieving your stress is something many students can struggle within school, but music can relieve that stress during class time. Listening to the music of your choice is very beneficial for students because it makes you feel more productive. A study in the United States showed that 90% of students and employees say that listening to music helps them focus and be more productive; but even though this study was done, teacher’s all around the world are still not allowing music. Most teachers who don’t allow music consider it a distraction for everyone in the class, but if anything it promotes good behaviour! I know for a fact that I always feel like doing something when I’m listening to my favourite song way more than if I was just going through the motions. Being productive and listening to music are definitely connected when it comes to school and the work that comes with it. Lastly, students should be allowed to listen to music in class because it encourages your brain to learn. Multiple studies done all around North America have discovered that by listening to music, it makes the brain learn better; it does this through specialized brain circuits that let students convert complicated ideas more easily than if they weren’t listening to music. An old teacher of mine used to let us listen to music in class, she even taught through music because she used to say that music is the key to successful learning and teaching. She used to write songs to help us remember important subjects or information and we’d all sing them together as a class. After about 6 years, I still have those songs stuck in my head! Due to music’s ability to encourage your brain to learn, it should undoubtedly be allowed in the classrooms.Since music is such a big part of everything we do as a society and because it provides many learning benefits, it should be allowed in the classrooms. Music can do this through three main things; relieving stress, making you feel more productive, and encouraging your brain to learn and keep information. Listening to music in class is not something that everyone agrees with, but it is unquestionably the right thing to give people a choice of how they want to learn.
