Personally it helps me loads, i get work done quite a bit faster, my english class forced our teacher to let us listen to our MP3's while doing timed essays.

My parents on the other hand dont let me, they think it distracts me

So who here finds it useful, and what sort of music's most effective? I know the usual answers classical or baroque, but say if you think anythings better. Pretty much anything works for me.

Our English teacher lets us listen to music when we do essays in class as it's the only way people shut up and concentrate. She always says don't have it loud enough to hear, but she never says anything to most people except the charvs or people who listen to dance music, hip hop and RnB. I had Seek And Destroy blasting last essay lesson and she didn't say anything, although the people around me weren't too happy as they could slightly hear it over there music, so I turned it down after a while.

Rockabilly...or Trash Metal.

I must be getting to a Pavlovian stage now because I can't work at all without music.

I find thrash is really good to help with creative writing.

Just don't write anything resembling Lord of the Rings. You WILL have rewritten Dragonforce lyrics.

There's an interesting story in a book called "The animator's survival kit"

Basically, the author goes and speaks to Milt Kahl (One of Disney's 9 old men) about what music he listens to. Milt then explodes saying he's not so stupid as to listen to music whilst working. Apparently you focus better, and express yourself better with nothing distracting you at all.

Thrash.
Although I WOULD tell you to listen to your fave kind, mine just happen to be thrash. =)

I can't do it. I had some Sigur Ros on before and I couldn't concentrate on this essay I'm doing.

Listening to music(metal) helps me concentrate on whatever else I'm doing, I can't study as easily in silence for some reason.

It's a great motivator I think. I don't advise it though.

I always believed that if you were to have music playing while you do maths questions or something, your brain gets familiar with those sounds, and so it's harder for you to replicate those results in an exam because your brain won't have the music to jog it's memory.

Hope that made sense.

a friend of mine kind of has that in reverse, if hes listening to something while he sees something memorable, everytime he hears the song he remembers the image/incident etc.

He once saw a lyric interpretation of Mask Of Sanity by Children Of Bodom, where someone had managed to get away with slipping in goatse at certain points. Needless to say he doesnt listen to that song much now.

I just start daydreaming if I'm doing work and there's nothing else around. I need distractions to remind me not to get distracted.
I play by my own rules. And I have one rule; There are no rules... but if there are, they're there to be broken. Even this one.


Confused? Good.

Its the same basic cognitive process

basically the music acts as a stimulus for a memory

Listening to any sort of 'rock' music just distracts me. So if I do listen to music while I work, it'll be DnB or some dark minimal techno. Generally the more aggressive the better.
