Abstract: In this thesis Music and Concentration Ameliorates Academic Performance, an experimental study was conducted to show how music and concentration can help to excel academic performance. In this study there were 4 groups: 3 experimental groups and 1 control group. In the first experimental group (Concentration Group), students were taught certain concentration techniques (with the help of the Gyan Mudra ) for a duration of one week tobe used while studying. After the completion of a week s training, they were given a learning task (a list of 15 words), to be learnt with the help of the concentration techniques and were then asked to recall the list of words in the same serial order as was presented to them. In the second experimental group (Music Group), students were taught how to learn some study material by listening to the tanpura music in the background, for a duration of one week. After the completion of a week s training, they were given a learning task (a list of 15 words), to be learnt with tanpura music in the background and were then asked to recall the list of words in the same serial order as was presented to them. In the third experimental group (Music and Concentration Group), students are taught the concentration techniques (with the help of the Gyan Mudra ) along with tanpura music in the background for a duration of one week, to be used while studying. After the completion of a week s training, they were given a learning task (a list of 15 words), to be learnt with the help of the concentration techniques and were then asked to recall the list of words in the same serial order as was presented to them. In the control group, students were not taught any concentration exercise, nor was music being played in the background. Students were simply asked to learn and then recall a list of 15 words in the same serial order as was presented to them.
