There is the adage that Mozart makes you smarter! When I was much younger I would protest that I could study better with music and I can assure you I wasnt listening to Mozart (although I enjoy it now). Now I am much older and hopefully wiser I prefer to study in silence. That way I am providing my undivided attention to the topic at hand.
no, to music of any kind.
once upon a time one of the main banks (will not name it) installed musac (mot sure of spelling ) it was impossible to work with it turned on, all it did was irritate and slow us down with whatever we were doing, not sure when the bank got rid of it, A happy day for all
