Music in my life

-Bob Marley


     Music can provide so many different factors to help someone in certain situations.  In particular music helps me stay focused when I’m studying, doing homework or doing class work. When I listen to music I like to listen to Rap and Hip-Hop, I like these genres because they usually are fast and high energy songs not a slow song with very little energy in it like country or something. Every study hall or class I’m allowed to listen to music I’ll take out my headphones and listen. I do this because I would rather listen to music then to listen to a kid complaining about the work or a teacher yelling at a kid for doing something stupid. An example of this is during Latin class Mrs. Libby usually lets us use headphones and I think when she doesn’t since we have a very loud and talkative class we get distracted and talk but when everyone’s using headphones people can’t hear each other so there’s no one being super distracting to the rest of the class. Some people may argue though that the listening music gets us distracted shuffling between songs and some people start dancing and singing to the music their listening to, I think that yes sometimes there is that kid who starts singing along to his favorite song besides that kids don’t really get distracted by their music. It doesn’t matter what type of music you listen to or why you listen to it music can help provide the energy or calmness you need at that time. It also helps to cancel out the noises around you so you can focus on what your doing.
