Peak Homework Playlist

Back to School


As it’s just as hot, the leaves are just as green, and the community pool is still open, just one thing has changed…School has started! Lake days become test days, while kitchen counters become work spaces, it’s hard to avoid what many of us most dread about school, the homework. Some may put it off until late at night, right before bed, while others prefer to do it first thing after school, but it’s universally known that homework can be hard to get done.

Among a multitude of methods to make homework less unbearable, many have found success in music. Whether it creates a calm and stress free environment or to motivate you with beats of great intensity, music has proven to be magical when it comes to manipulating life into what the listener desires. As a fond listener of any and all types of music, I have compiled a list of songs for each subject of school so that each choice helps you focus to your best ability.
