Aural, musical and rhythmic

About you

You like to work with sound and music and have an innate sense of pitch and rhythm. You may sing or play a musical instrument and can easily differentiate between the origin of sounds. You often notice music playing in the background of movies or TV shows and certain songs will spark an emotional reaction. You often find yourself humming or tapping a song and themes or jingles pop into your head without prompting.

GED: Auditory study style

Study style

You learn best when you’re able to incorporate sound, rhyme or music into the process. Listening to podcasts or videos which include aural explanations of concepts helps you to absorb information more easily.

Creating associations between studying or learning and certain types of music will enable you to remain focused on the task at hand, regardless of location.

Learning methods

  • Engage in group discussions on key concepts
  • Create mnemonics or acrostics that use rhythm and rhyme to memorise concepts
  • Associate studying with certain types of music to maintain concentration or provide inspiration
  • Listen to podcasts or videos to break down key topics
  • Where possible, use sound effects to help you visualise concepts
  • If studying with a partner or teacher, repeat back what you’ve learnt or explain it in your own words
