Study Playlist

I need a very specific work environment: no chatter from other people, but a little bit of background music. The problem then lies in what type of music I can listen to without getting too distracted (and with finals coming up, the last thing I have time for is being distracted). I forgo lyrics (too catchy) and stick with purely instrumental compositions, but I like to make sure the beat is still lively enough to keep me awake and focused. Here are a few of my favorite songs to listen to while I study…

Stay with Me (String Quartet Tribute to Sam Smith) – Vitamin String Quartet

Für Elise – Beethovens

Canon in D Major – Johann Pachelbel

Grace – Neil Cowley Trio

Longing – Kari Bin

Embers – Tracey Chattaway

The Girl Who Broke My Heart – The Gloaming

Calon Lan – Chessboxer

New Start – Uniq  

Moon – Sleeping At Last
