Although many people are against it, music actually helps a lot of people to concentrate! I'm one among those and can't really get into anything without music. The genre totally depends on what I'm working on though

No, it distracts me a little bit. Though if I am in a loud place, I have to listen to the music to muffle the noise.

Sometimes I listen to some lounge music, mostly on the radio. Classical music also good to me, but in general, anything else only distracts me

Yes, but only to instrumentals. Otherwise music distracts me because I want to sing along to it.

Sometimes, when the mind is like too disturbed. I use music to meditate. Something that I read in a blog few years back and had been doing to conveniently.

Yes, there are lot of lofi playlists on Youtube I listen to while writing. They are pretty good for a background noise and don't distract you too much.

I don't listen to music, it distracts. But I have a friend who listens to music while writing an essay, it doesn't distract him.

Most of the people get distracted upon hearing music while they are studying or writing any paper. But students listen music when they copy notes, not when they write their own.But there are some people who listen music even while they are studying.

Look forward to hear from you

I listen to mellow music when I want to read something or writing some reports but when studying I don't do some music.

Not only while writing essay, also while writing anything as it lowers my brain-ache a bit.
