It is believed that recall is influenced by the tempo and style of music. The main purpose of the research was to discover if jazz or classical music effects the ability to recall information. It was hypothesized that classical music at 60 and 120 beats per minute was more effective than jazz music at 60 and 120 beats per minute. In the present study, a two by two dimension will be used to compare jazz and classical music at 60 beats per minute and 120 beats per minute to observe how much material individuals can remember. 60 randomly selected individuals read a comprehensive GRE passage for 5 minutes. Although there were many limitations in this study, it serves to show the importance in developing methods for better recall.
