Study: Baroque music helps you focus

In a three year research study, Maya Ruvinshteyn and Leonard Parrino, instructors in math at Essex County College and Rutgers-Newark, found when they played baroque background music in their classes, it made a difference. Here’s how…

* 86 % of students surveyed enjoyed class more with baroque background music whereas 76 % of students without any music found the class enjoyable

* 33 % of students found math challenging whereas 46 % in the class without the baroque music found it challenging.

Earlier research findings show that Baroque music enhances learning of foreign languages and improves performance in some types of tests.
