Teachers are always asking me to turn off my music or music doesn't help you learn! Does it? I usally work better with my music playing and I don't have it loud either, so what is the problem?
I think that we should be allowed to listen to music in class as I think it helps with my concentrtation and helps me work harder.

How are you listening in class if you are playing music? Surely that won't help your concentration.

i agree. music helps me too.
and u cant hear anyone so u dont get distracted, like u do without music!! ;)
Posted by U13872908 (U13872908) on ,
see, personally, music doesnt help me, but it helps some people, and if they get more work done, then why not! as long as it didnt distract me, then i think its fine:)

Well if you put all the infomation on a board that can be read, then you don't really need to listen.
On the other hand the teacher can call out everyone if they want to talk to the class and if anyone doesn't listen he/she can ask them directly, if the person doesn't want to listen and keeps their headphones in, thjen the infomation can be put up on the board.

when i am listening to music i dont get distracted in doin work. whereas otherwise no work will get done. or i have to sing then people find it disstracting
so i dno
but i find it help

well if you think about it, people learn in different ways and they all have things which help them learn
and if music helps people do this then yer why not?
but the thing is you could not get as much work done because you are distracted by changing songs and looking for different artists
also if you have music on, u seem to just get your head down and get on with your work and you dont take any notice about what is happeniong around you

I'm not saying that I disagree with you, but there have been scientific studies that have showed a decrease in concentration levels when you try to work and listen to music at the same time. Also, you waste time picking new pieces of music each time the previous one finished.
However, I know that some people do find it easier to work with a background noise, and so I can see why it might help.

I think you should listen to music if u want 2 but as long as it doesnt distract any1 else in the room. Also i think you should only listen 2 music when the teacher is not talking 2 you otherwise you dont no wat 2 do or learn anything!

I reckon it should be allowed in lessons like when we are actually doing the work like when on the computers or the books.
like once the task has been set seeing as it does actually help some people as long as its not too loud.

i think music should be allowed in a classroom as i feel it does not affect your concentration, i mean everybody learns in different waysand if music helps you learn then why not, for example in run up to the geography GCSE i was listening to a song about the watercycle in class and it helped me loads when it came to do the examination and aslo music i feel helps you concentrate more as you are more focused,
so long as you don't burst out singing in class then why shouldn't music be allowed?

I agree,it really does help some people (like me!) with their concentration! :-D

It's been proven that listening to music and chewing gum improves your concentration.
Funny that they're two things that are banned in school (:

Music makes my concentration worse.
But sometimes, I do put on my ipod quietly as background noise when I'm doing my art coursework.
Posted by Jj (U13908081) on ,
Personally, Music helps me work for 3 reasons
1. It blocks out all the background noise and distractions so I can get my head down and do my work.
2. It helps me remember my work when a certain song comes on, which can be annoying and helpful
3. It sometimes helps with work, from art to English, the lyrics sometimes inspire you.
I have a really nice teacher who lets us have our 'music players' out whilst writing coursework or when working in computer rooms.

It is true that music can improve your concerntration. I for instance, I really love music that I cannot live for a few days without music/playing the piano. However all the same, children can sometimes get out of control depending on the type of music we listen to if we were are allowed to listen to music in class. Think about it. There would be chaos and calamity,if everyone else in class were to play music constantly. We might all end up singing or doing something linked to the music we listen to. We might not gain anything from the lesson. There is time for everything!

I agree with u! Music helps me in class because i can't get distracted from my mates and it just helps me to concentrate. I think we should be allowed to listen to music in class

heya i think that personaly i can concentrate more with music as in that case i am not chatting away with my freinds i prefer to work with music on it enhances my work quality whereas if u are revision with music on you wont really end up learning anything because you take in the sound waves rter than the text from the book.

When the teacher is talking and you have music on of course that isn't going to help you concentrate but when you get down to work i feel it does help my concentrate as i don't get distracted and start thinking more but of course everyone is different.
