Two students are discussing whether it is helpful to listen to music while studying. Jenny: Research shows that listening to music can disturb your concentration. You can get confused by the various words and notes in the songs. Tom: I found a different research study! Some music, like Mozart’s classical music, can make you smarter. Music also puts me in a good mood. I can study with positive energy.
