Hello!
Does music help you to concentrate on your studying or distract?
Look forward to hear from you

I always listen to music while doing work. I've found the most important thing for me is what type of music I listen to. I try to do lighter more relaxing music for work and instrumental music when studying.

Write essays while listening to "Lose Yourself" makes you feel epic but reading the essay without music... not so much lol

I suppose that it depends on the type of essay. For GMAT preparation, I require absolute silence. And even if you prefer music while preparing for the GMAT, it might be better to do without distractions in order to mimic the actual test environment (which will be very quiet).

For school and application essays (and subsequent reviewing and editing), I also prefer minimal distractions. I'm not as strict about it, though.

Music often distracts me, actually.
