Are you feeling a little unfocused? Have a case of the Wednesday-s? Put on some Baroque music! Researchers at the University of Maryland and University of Pennsylvania have found that listening to baroque music while they worked improved radiologists mood, concentration and work satisfaction. Music from this period, especially pieces set to 60 beats per minute, also improve information retention and increase the speed of learning new skills. Check out this list of Baroque composers for an idea of what to look for. Pachelbel, Vivaldi, Bach, and Handel, are popular and foolproof choices. I’m giving it a try while I study for an upcoming exam, anyone care to join me? Let us know if you notice an improvement!
