Affecting humans and the surrounding they live in, today, and in the past and the future, music plays a key role. Similar to any form of art, music has the prowess of stabilizing the human mind.
Different musical forms have different effects on the human mind. Some forms create waves of hyper activeness, while the other forms create a strong sense of serenity.
As some forms of emotion are difficult to express, like juggling thoughts before an exam result, to waiting outside an operation theatre, music has the power of keeping thoughts straight and positive. Obviously, when the right melodies are listened to.
Art is realized as one of the rare activities that are predicative in changing human ideas about reality, alter the fixed ideas, and helps in gaining flexibility.
In today’s world, when there are heavy environmental concerns, related to the society, which are gaining more and more popularity, art is helping in deciding topics for discussion, transmitting values and meanings through emotions, and instead of being rational with numbers and facts, it is altering the natural sciences views and engineering perspectives with philosophy. Music is equally helping in the changes of thought frequencies.
For example, when the same notes are listened to every day, which has to be spiritually uplifting, it generates some kind of solidity about holding to the life-changing decisions. A person while listening if develops the habit of thinking creatively, then the whole world changes. It is the same while studying, though it is really tough to listen to lyrical tunes, however, the classical rhythms of strings, percussion, woodwind, keyboard, or brass help in staying focused.

Of course, it sometime becomes monotonous to listen to the same tune all the time. In those cases, students can listen to art songs (musical poems) to take breaks in between studies.
This is the most sought after ways to stay indulged to study and keep the focus intact.
