I'm not sure about other students..but for me I LOVE listening to peaceful Christmas music while I do my homework/ care plans. It really gets me focused and puts me in the best mood! Anybody else out there do the same thing?

Gregorian chant is awesome focusing/study music.

Sometimes I study in complete silence. Sometimes I listen to instrumental smooth jazz while studying because it is relaxing and enhances my concentration.

I use yoga/meditation music, and give it a thumbs down if there is too much melody. Just droning on, through noise canceling head phones. That's what it's taking to concentrate on theory & advanced research.

I may check out Gregorian chant but usually human voices are too engaging for me.

Well the nice thing about Gregorian chant is that it's in Latin. Since I don't understand it, it's as good as instrumental to me. ;)

I usually stick to light classical. More heavy-handed classical, the jazz I prefer (bebop, Latin, and big band), and anything with words is too distracting for me. I'm tempted to sing if it has words lol! Instrumental Christmas music is a nice idea though :)

I LOVE early Western music, but most of the stuff I have is Renaissance. Some would be fine for studying, but the up-tempo stuff distracts me, esp. if the study material is dry. Never thought of Gregorian chant. I might just have to try that! :)

Not a student here, but I found I like to put on classical music (Beethoven, Brahms, etc kind). NO WORDS, so I can't sing along. But I have found that I do remember some particular music from the old Looney Tunes cartoons that I watched forever as a kid. Then I get side-tracked and start thinking about Daffy & Porky & Bugs, etc.

I think there are probably lots of us 80s kids whose primary exposure to classical music was Looney Tunes. Kinda sad but hilarious.

I mostly study in silence. I do enjoy piano though- google Yiruma, "River flows in you". Favorite.
