Just wondering if the volume that music is played at affects you when you're revising at all. also, does the genre of music make any difference to you guys?

Hi,

Personally, it also depends on the background noise.
If there is loud background noise, loud music helps drown out the crowd and I revise better. However, if background noise is quiet, then usually softer music is better otherwise the loud music is distracting.

The genre doesn't really matter to me, but I find that rock music can be distracting sometimes. More so than genre though, is probably language. Like, if I'm listening to a song with english vocals while also writing in english, I get distracted easily. I don't know, it works better for me to listen to a song without vocals or song in a language I don't understand.

I find if it's too loud it will be distracting and if it's too quiet I'll spent too much time trying to listen to it more carefully.

I find that I work slower when I have music playing but I enjoy it more so revision becomes less painful! I don't find that being instrumental or foreign language makes any difference for me. Genre wise I find things that are really catchy, dissonant, happy/bouncy or melancholy are bad. Somewhere in between is ideal.
