Did you know that some people believe that if
you listen to Mozart, you do better on tests? Well, some recent
studies show that this is true! A group of high-schoolers
volunteered to have the experiment tested on them. What
happened? When the high-schoolers listened to pop music or another
classical composer, the music didn’t affect them on a test,
but when they listened to Mozart, they got higher test scores. Then
the testers had a different group sit in 10 minutes silence they
also thought that sitting in silence helped your brain. The group
that listened to Mozart also sat and listened to Mozart for 10
minutes. After the 10 minutes were up, both groups took the same
test. The Mozart group scored higher. The tests suggest that, if
you want to do better on tests, buy a few CD’s or cassettes
that have Mozart music, and listen to them every day. Happy
listening and do better on tests!
