Music has many affects on the brain. In our story, we discuss how Georgi Lazonov, a Bulgarian neurologists, used classical music in his experiment. We see how students were able learn from 100-1000 new foreign vocabulary words per day at a 98% retention rate. This is known to some as the “Mozart Effect.” However, some people aren’t able to focus while music is playing in the background. Songs with lyrics can distract people trying from the task in hand.

But if you do want to use music while studying, the most popular is known as  Baroque music. This is music with a 50-80 beats per minutes(bpm)  which creates a soothing atmosphere. Look up 60 bpm music online to find hundreds of free songs while you study for your next test, reading, or even just relaxing.
