Use Music in Teaching and Learning

music notes

Do you use music in your teaching and learning? If not, maybe you should consider using music.

Research has shown that music can:

  • Set a positive mood
  • Raise energy levels
  • Reduce stress levels
  • Calm your students
  • Motivate and inspire your students
  • Keep students focused and attentive

Whether you need to calm your students down, or get them up and moving, music is just the thing to try out.

    I often have music playing when students enter class. I use classical mixes from 8tracks.com (you get a certain number of hours free per week) or from Pandora.com. I will also play themed music on special occasions (holidays, Halloween, Mardi Gras).
