“I like listening to indie rock or trendy music because it makes me feel like I’m in a studying montage in a bad teen drama, and I’m more productive. I’m very into ‘Sweet Disposition’ by The Temper Trap right now. My all-time favorite song is ‘Wake Me’ by Bleachers though.”

— Junior Sophie Duda

“I listen to rock because it’s easy for me to tone out and pay attention to my work without getting too distracted. Sometimes, I also listen to lo-fi because it’s soft and mostly only beats.” — Junior Mariah Hawkins

“One of my top study songs is ‘Cherry Wine’ by Hozier. I like the tempo of it, and Hozier’s voice is so nice. I also like listening to recordings of my grandmother from the ‘70s and ‘80s.” — Senior Kayla Melcher

“I listen to a lot of songs, but the song I enjoy listening to while I study is ‘Outta Control’ by John Altyn. I like listening to it because I heard it in a movie called Sleep Away Camp.”  — Junior Ismael Zarate

“It’s just easier to focus when I’m listening to something I like. For studying, I listen to mostly classical music, like Tchaikovsky or Bach, and I like Ancient Airs and Dances and ‘The Swan’ by Camille Saint-Saëns too. When I’m doing math, I like to listen to pop rock, like ‘The Loneliest’ or ‘Coraline’ by Måneskin.”  — Senior Mezzy Epidendio

“Honestly it depends! Mostly I just listen to Spotify-created playlists that have jazz or classical music on them because I get distracted when I listen to music with lyrics. Two playlists I like to listen to while I study are Jazz for Study and Dark Academia Classical, which were both made by Spotify.” — Freshman Siboney Lynch 

“For math, I listen to anything on my playlist that’s more upbeat, to distract me from the more boring parts of math. If I have to write, I listen to quieter music, and if it’s late, I listen to something slow.” — Sophomore Ella Thomson

“I have to listen to songs I don’t know or else I’ll get distracted, so normally I just look up chill music on Spotify and they have those curated playlists. I’ll find songs now and then that I’ll add to my regular playlist. I remember one artist I found was Chelsea Cutler and I follow her music now, so I think those playlists are good ways to find artists I otherwise wouldn’t know of.” — Senior Ryann Barnes
