Music Therapy Helps in Exam Review

The multi - intelligence theory suggests that different kids do have different learning styles and I guess this applies to reviewing as well. However, if I have to account how I reviewed when I was an honor student since elementary days, I remember I had to be in secluded places to review fully and I did it without other interruption not even music to help me.

However, when I was already working and only had to review for my masteral comprehensive examinations, I  did change my review techniques and implored slow - classical  music to isolate my focus on review and not mind the noise around my place. 

So, if you ask me if music helps in exam review, I could only say "YES."  This kind of medium used for exam, counselling, de - briefing among others is what experts claim as "Music Therapy."

Music, may it be produced or transmitted from conventionally or otherwise with all the  instrument and equipment can quite help us focus and relieve of stress or tension from any pressures / concerns.

Wikipedia defines Music Therapy as,
" . . . is the clinical and evidence-based use of music interventions to accomplish individualized goals within a therapeutic relationship by a credentialed professional who has completed an approved music therapy program."
Music therapy is employed in medical centers, hospitals, schools, alcohol and drug rehabilitation and psychiatric centers.

So, if you feel too stressed out while reviewing for exam, try music therapy and assess its effects.
