Do you ever get yelled at for listening to music at school? Well, did you know that music exposure can improve learning and create a positive environment in the classroom?

Listening to music can help kids learn better and boost their mood.

Teachers may say they don’t want their kids listening to music because they’re not paying attention or they are being disrespectful. But students should be allowed to listen after directions or just doing their assignments. From a teacher’s perspective, they might be iffy on the subject. But if a student listens to directions, they should be allowed to listen to music. According to Safe Supporting Learning, “Did you know that exposure to music can improve learning and increase positive classroom atmosphere? Active engagement with music can impact the way that the brain processes information, enhancing the perception of language and speech, and subsequently improving our ability to communicate with others and learn to read”

Walking around the hall or being disruptive and disrespectful is a different story. But when students are productive and respectful, music shouldn’t be harmful to the classroom. Music can make kids more motivated to go to school. 

Teachers and students need a healthy relationship. Music can affect them in a positive way, especially if they had  a bad morning. Some kids just have a bad homelife and need music to focus. Music can help kids. Music should be allowed in schools, as long as kids use it right and aren’t disrespectful.

In the end, listening to music causes no real harm to anyone in the classroom. Music is a positive component.
