Music and Study

Dec 01 2012

While research suggests that alternating your study location (e.g. home, library, coffee shop) aids in memory retention, adjusting the auditory environment in order to concentrate is a personal issue that varies from individual to individual.  Some apply ear plugs or noise cancelling headphones, while others prefer to loop a favorite track.  There are also a number of websites providing different types of ambient noise, ranging from natural sounds to simple white noise.

The NYIT Library subscribes to Naxos Music Library (NML). A collection of close to 1 million tracks and 70,000 discs, NML is the world´s largest online classical music library, offering everything from Mozart's Requiem Mass in D Minor to John Cage's Percussion Works.  Listed below are a few favorites.  Enjoy!
