Play • 21 min

"Is it OK to listen to music while studying" is the #1 question Alix and I get asked when we're out running revision workshops in schools.

But is music going to distract you?

Or on the other hand, is there evidence for any benefits to listening to music?

Join me as I take a look at what the evidence says, and offer up some top tips for how YOU should best think about using music while studying!
