Can deep focus music help you study, concentrate, and focus?
Some people need complete silence to be "in the zone" of focus, others can't focus without some type of heavy metal music playing. Maybe you are somewhere in between buy having a light background of white or brown noise.
Others will need deep focus music in the Alpha range of brainwave entrainment frequencies with soft ambient music mixed in to stay focused on the task at hand.
The correct type of music with brainwaves mixed in can take you into deep Alpha and even deeper into Theta brainwave states. This type of music can activate the left and right brain hemispheres at the same time which can greatly increase learning abilities and improve memory in many people.
Ambient sounds that you would expect to hear on a soundtrack during a spa treatment with ambient sounds with nature sounds of babbling brooks, wind, rain, and birds can help you relax. Be sure and keep the volume levels as low as possible so that it's in the background and doesn't drown out your thoughts to become a distraction to your focus.
How does deep focus music alpha waves help with learning?
Alpha waves are known to be the most beneficial when learning a new task or new information. The Alpha state (8–10 Hz) is when the mind and body are relaxed but a strong level of focus is maintained. In the Alpha state, the brain slows its activity slightly below our normal waking state of Beta which is 11–25 Hz.
Do alpha waves improve focus and concentration?
Using brain entrainment mp3s to increase and lock onto the Alpha brainwaves can stimulate the brain to be more creative. Recently neuroscientists have discovered a direct correlation between an increase of Alpha brainwave entrainment using either electrical stimulation or through mindfulness and meditation techniques showed the ability to reduce symptoms of depression.
