Classical music might be a good choice, as it can tend to calm the nerves and help you focus. On the other hand, listening to loud, raucous music that's distracting can have the opposite effect by keeping your mind preoccupied with the music rather than the subject matter at hand.

I listen to music not only while writing essay. I listen to music while walking with my dog while going home from a walk. While sitting home and doing some homework tasks or just doing nothing. I like to listen to music especially when I am on the bus or a train riding somewhere far, really far. Also, I listen to music when I am at the gym or when I am going to buy something. I don't even remember the last day when I left home without my earphones. And there are no situations music is annoying for me.

Man, I like music but I hate writing essays. It is hard to concentrate so silence is my friend. Also, the help from Google is who I trust too.

No. The more exciting the music, the more difficult it is to concentrate. Music has a bad effect on verbal assignments. Music with a lot of variations interferes with productivity, even if a person enjoys it. Music and speech in comparison with silence cause irritability and memory problems. But music without words is less distracting.

Surely, yes. It is not a secret, that different people can do different activities within the period of learning and training itself. So part of them likes to listen to the music. Part of them is not. That is the reason you are looking for the opportunity to complete the task with the help of the favorite melodies or not. That is the main cause you are going to work as one of the questions there. To begin with, the first problem will be connected with the conditions and if the music helps. If yes, you will be the one to use it.

Listening to music will most probably restrict your thoughts. So, i don't think it's wise to do this.

In my case, i need silence to concentrate on studies or writing.

No, I never listen or try to listen to music while writing an essay. It distracts me. Not helpful for me.

Sometimes this mood happens, but I try to listen only to classical music. because a different genre will distract me.
