Music in the Classroom and Learning Experience
An extensive report on a study conducted on high school students to test the soothing and calming effects of music.
This study is an attempt to research the effect that music has on student learning and behavior. The paper uses the existing body of knowledge and practical observation to find out if the use of music in learning situations, used both as a supplement to interdisciplinary studies and as a “background” can help students improve their learning and retention, provide a calming tone to the environment to set the tone for learning, as well as make learning and taking part in the institutional social experience more enjoyable for students. In other words, does the purposeful introduction of music into the classroom and institutional environment have a noticeably positive effect on the aforementioned three areas of the learning curriculum?
