Listening to singer Robbie Williams' songs can increase the brain's capacity for learning in children, says a study conducted by LernQuadrant in Australia.
According to ananova, the study tried to find which music helps children concentrate better as well as take in and retain more information. It concluded that songs by Williams and singer Anastacia were best at "stimulating the learning abilities of young people".
Konrad Zimmermann, director of the study says: "Classical music, which has long been considered beneficial to learning, is obviously not fit for the world of young people today. They need to know and like the music in order for it to have a stimulating effect on learning."
