The best study sessions always have the perfect soundtrack. You’ll need music that’s calming, keeps stress at bay, and — most importantly — isn’t distracting (Could you imagine studying to “Bohemian Rhapsody” without singing along?!). Set the mood of your next study session with one of these Pandora stations below.
1. New Age Instrumental
We’ll bet you’ll recognize quite a few songs in this playlist. The catch? It’s all instrumentals, so those catchy lyrics you usually sing along to are nixed.
2. Hans Zimmer
You might not know the name Hans Zimmer, but you’re definitely familiar with his work! This famous film composer is the brain behind the soundtracks of Pirates of the Caribbean, The Lion King, The Dark Knight, and many more. Once again, it’s all instrumentals.
3. Instrumental Hip Hop
You don’t need to stick to the classical and acoustic genres for a calming, distraction-free study session. This station offers some of the best beats in hip hop — without the lyrics, of course.
4. Coffee House Covers
If you’re not easily distracted by song lyrics, why not keep them in there? This playlist puts a chill, acoustic spin on some of your favorite classics.
5. Classical for Studying
They always say that classical pieces make the best study music, so you can’t go wrong with the elegant orchestral sounds of this playlist!
