Play Low, Soft Music

Music is a universal language crossing all cultures and ethnicities. Music strengthens the auditory, visual/spatial and motor cortices of the brain. These areas are tied to speech and language skills, reading comprehension, brain organization, focus and attention. Playing low, soft music in the background can support productivity and mindfulness in the classroom. 2 tips for playing music in the classroom: 

  1. Classical music has the most benefit for attention and focus. (Music selections: Bach, Haydn, Mozart, and Vivaldi). 
  2. Playing a variety of music additionally promotes relevance and exposure to other cultural backgrounds.
