Any local and even international curricula you choose will give you one of these ‘punisher’ weeks for sure. No escape. But the pressure is all part of the training, of course. However, one of the best things that can make it less stressful somehow is music. It can help alleviate your mood, soothe your mind, tune up your focus and drive away some negative vibes and noises around you.

Well, not all people can study and absorb information with music on the background. But for those who can (and probably needs it now), below are the top five music genres that can help you survive your finals hell week, may it be

  1. Funk

The right amount of hype and beautiful bass lines will keep your mind alive yet settled at the same time. It can make you tap your feet and move a little bit, but funky music can help you maintain your focus. This genre can even make you feel like dancing without actually doing it.

  1. Rhythm and Blues

Rhythm and Blues, popularly known as R&B, is a bit close to funk beat. But besides the good rhythm within it which makes it easier for the hearer to concentrate, this music genre also has a good amount of soul within it, which can calm your nerves and absorb light or positive feels.

The sound of piano and saxophone is like a piece of heaven on earth that can lighten your darkest of days – especially when your next professor is simply the toughest steak you have this school year. Jazz can definitely help you calm your nerves and ease your worries, even for a couple of minutes. With just the right touch of bass and mostly light airy vibe, it will definitely uplift your mood and aid on thinking with focus.

  1. Classical

Nothing beats the classical music genre when it comes to surviving your hell week in school. Tested and proven by experts, this kind of music does it all, even to an unborn child – soothe your mind, uplift your mood, improve focus and develop positive vibes.
