Incorporating Music with Studying

We all know that studying can be boring and dreadful at times, especially if the material is not interesting! Tired of sitting at a desk for more than 30 minutes to study! Spice things up a bit by incorporating your favorite children songs! Music is a really cool and fun strategy to use when studying for a test or preparing for anything that requires memorizing. Turning study notes into lyrics will enhance the memory capacity. Think about your favorite children songs and the way the lyrics still sticks in your mind and roll off your tongue years later. Most of us know all the lyrics to our favorite songs because we enjoy singing it or just like the way it sounds! “Row Row Row your boat gently down the stream. Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily, Life is but a dream.”  Simply replacing your favorite song lyrics with notes the next time you study will make the process much more enjoyable!
