    Do you usually study listening to music? Why?
    I don´t usually listen to music when I study because I think I couldn´t concentrate if I did it.
    However I sometimes listen to music when I do my homework because it is relaxing and I don´t become absentminded when I listen to it.

    Quite well!
    Perhaps you should use “distracted” instead of “absent-minded” (which refers more to a quality than a state).

    5 Study listening to music is a way of relaxing and not to worry so much for the studies. I believe that the music is always good at any time, but in case of the studies first of all you must put a music adapted for the situation, it must never come to get distracted because this will lead to problems and it will not help you. In short, in my case I love putting music when study, it does that is is less stressful.

    Music is a way to convey a series of emotions and feelings at a certain time and with a purpose.

    Each type of music reflects different things that make it unique: classic tranquility or sadness rap anger or guilt and all are purposely used to awaken different moods like fear, introga, joy …

    In my opinion that music makes you feel is the most important since its function is to express with total freedom and without limits the feelings of each.
