Classical Music can help to Stimulate Learning, Enhance Concentration

Recent research by OnlineCollege.org, an online college education provider, has found that high-anxiety students who listen to classical music with 60 to 70 beats per minute while they study, score 12 per cent more in their maths exams on average, she said.

Beats per minute indicates the speed of a piece of music. The more beats per minute, the faster the music.

The idea of the "Mozart effect" - that listening to Mozart's music can make the brain work better - originated from a study carried out in 1993 at the University of California by researchers GordonShaw and Frances Rauscher, she said.

Ms Nicole M. Charara, a clinical psychologist at the Center for Psychology in Singapore who is not involved with Spotify, said: "Studies have shown that classical music targets the part of the brain that stimulates spatial-temporal reasoning, which is useful in solving maths problems."

It is mainly the left side of the brain that is used to process factual information and solve problems.
