One person could concentrate well and understand what he is studying while there is music in the background. Another hates it and cannot concentrate. Silence is what they need and no distraction so that they can be effective in studies. For those who can study more when there is music in the background, then there is music that was made intentionally for them. They are also available on the internet and they could be downloaded for free. There are various choices that you can make so you will not be bored.
You may have experience having someone who does not like music while you like it. He may even hide the radio for you not to listen to it so that he can study. Now it is the time that you can use your own phone and have a headset so you can listen on your own. You will not disturb him anymore and so you can do both what you like.
