Music also reduces blood pressure or boosts our immunity. It was inevitable that at some point it caught the eye of cognitive psychologists interested in human learning capabilities. Consequently, music emerged as a significant factor for improving the learning process among students of all ages. Here are some reasons why introducing music to the classroom is worth the effort.

Did you know you learn better when you study actively? Next time you have a test, instead of passively reading and re-reading your textbook, try the following active study techniques:
- Explain concepts in your own words, to yourself or someone else. Remember: it’s okay to talk to yourself!
- Make review sheets/ Write out the main points.
- Join a study group in which you and the other members test each other on the material.
- Write and re-write things — like names, dates, formulas, vocabulary, and verb conjugations — from memory.
- Draw out/ diagram complex concepts.
- Do practice problems — and don’t look at the answers until you’re done!
- Take practice tests provided by your teacher.
- Think up potential test questions (and answer them).
- Test yourself with flash cards, lists, etc.
