The use of different types of music to increase concentration and efficiency is one of the main trends in recent years when it comes to effective work, study, or in general any routine process that people often put off, and which can become a problem for those who are used to procrastinating. Today we want to talk about what music is best for students who need to write academic papers. Of course, we are unlikely to provide you with just a list of hits, listening to which will suddenly turn you into professional essay writers. But we interviewed a lot of students, and also tried some tips on ourselves, and we can definitely say that with this music your writing process will become much more effective. And perhaps you will begin to enjoy it.



The Best Music For Writing is Not Your Favorite Music

Let's first discuss the most important topic and answer a question that we get asked quite typically. The best music for concentration and helping with efficiency is almost never the music you love most. More frequently, you associate your favorite music with something good. It lifts your mood, or vice versa makes you feel more romantic. Or reminds you of some interesting events in life. All this is very healthy for your emotional state. But most likely this will be an additional obstacle to focusing on research, on coming up with fascinating arguments for your work. And there is a high probability that the associative series associated with this music will make you distracted for quite a long time. You can, for example, open YouTube and start searching for tracks that you associate with a certain period in your life. Or you might want to look at a photo, or dance to a romantic melody, or write messages to people with whom a particular melody is associated. Therefore, do not turn on the playlist of your favorite music when you need to work well and efficiently on your essay.

If you are absolutely sure that no music can help you fast enough with your academic writing tasks, address a reliable service like WriteMyPaperHub with a “I need someone to write my paper” request. Sometimes students need to delegate tasks in order to receive quality papers on time and proceed with their studies. Choose your writing service wisely, trust experienced writers, and let yourself have a breather.  



Check the Ready Made Playlists

If you open YouTube and google the topic — the best music for students, while writing academic papers, you will see that you no longer need to invent anything. And you just need to choose from a dozen or maybe hundreds of playlists that have already been made for you by fellow music lovers. But there are also tricks here. 

  1. Give it time, don’t give up. All people have different concentrations and this music will be different for everyone. If the first two or three playlists did not work for you, then do not think that music does not help you study at all. It’s just that these particular playlists didn’t suit you in terms of music tempo or temperament or performance, so keep looking further. 

  2. Try to specify your request. When searching, specify that you need calm music for writing papers, or jazz music for writing papers, or rhythmic music for writing papers. This will help you quickly find a genre and format that works well for you. 

  3. Choose playlists divided into different songs, and they are not stuck together. Or at least there is a list of songs or music that are used in this playlist. This way, you can then select the songs that suit you best or that you like the most, and you will create your own playlist of your favorite songs, rather than wasting time searching through Shazam or Google to find out what song was playing. 

  4. Analyze! When it already seems that the work has been done, and the desired playlist has been found, or compiled from your favorite tunes, and you can start writing an essay and expect a sharp increase in efficiency and energy, but there are no positive results. And this may be because you pick your playlist when you are in one emotional state, and turn it on when you are in another. Or if you made a playlist when you are full of energy in the morning, and the music is rhythmic and driving, and you sit down to write an essay at the end of a busy school day, when, on the contrary, you just want to calm down. It’s better to choose several playlists, and they will definitely come in handy over the years of your studies. 

  5. As studies say, and we think you yourself have experienced this more than once — when you listen to the same type of music, you very soon get used to it, and there is no longer the effect that you expect, so you should not select melodies in the playlist that are absolutely similar in tone, It’s better, after all, to alternate different melodies, although the general mood of the playlist may be certain.


Avoid Songs in Your Own Language

A rule of thumb when it comes to picking music for effective study or work is to choose songs without lyrics. But, if you don’t like music without words, select songs in a foreign language. Preferably in a language you don't know at all. If you are a native English speaker, then songs in English will distract you more than any other songs. The brain is designed in such a way that it processes all the information that comes your way. You cannot fully concentrate on research in English and at the same time listen to a song in the same language. You will still mentally process the information that comes with this song. Even if it seems to you that you are completely disconnected from the song, you are not. Somewhere in your brain, information is being processed, and at the same time you get tired and distracted more than listening to music, for example, in an unfamiliar language. 

We hope our advice will be useful for you, and you will be able to choose exactly the music that will become your reliable assistant.
