Many years ago I read the book “Super-Learning”.
One of the chapters talks about the effect of music on the brain and physiology and how it can help with learning.
Turns out that when you listen to the Largo parts of baroque compositions, which are usually around 60bpm, that your heart rate slows down to the same 60bpm speed, the incessant frequent thoughts flashing through your mind slow down, and that relaxed state that your mind and body settle into, opens up your mind for faster learning.
Studies suggest that of all the music styles out there, that (slow) baroque music would be the one style that is most impactful on relaxing the mind.
The gist of all these studies is that the very compositionally structured nature of baroque, with all its voice leading and strict compositional rules and principles, is one of the reasons why the mind is made at easy on a deeper level than if you would for example listen to a slow country or slow blues song. 🙂
Here are some examples of music that, when played in the background while you’re studying or reading, will make you study more easily, more focused, and with greater success in retention.
Here’s a list of songs you can get to use as background music while you’re studying.
Hit me up anytime at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions, or if you would like to book a lesson.
These free lessons are cool, but you will never experience the progress, joy, and results that my students experience in lessons when you’re learning by yourself from blogs and videos.
That is why people take lessons: way better results and progress, much more complete information, exposed to way more creative ideas than you can get from a blog or YouTube video.
There is only so much that self-study can accomplish.
If you want to see amazing results and progress in your guitar playing, buy your first lesson here and get started ASAP.
You’ll impress your friends and loved ones in no time with your guitar playing!
