Many times students use songs to learn complex formulas and phrases. Music stimulates our ‘memory vault’. ● Helps In Focus A 2007 study from the Stanford University School of Medicine suggested that music can help you better absorb and interpret new information and that’s because listening to music engages your brain and actually trains it to pay more attention to what you are learning. ● Meditative Many people have heard about the benefits of meditation and mindfulness in managing stress and anxiety.
