Psychology experts have for a long time claimed that one of the main effects that listening to music has on the brain is that is makes you happier. Listening to music provides us with the same burst of happiness that we would get from say, being with people that you love or eating chocolate. As well as making you feel better, music can also help you focus a little better. You could say music makes studying seem like more of a hobby than a chore!
