So…I can no longer tell my students that ask me if they can listen to music while they’re working no. Unless the teacher specifically tells me they can’t, even though I personally can’t have ANY noise while I’m studying or working on something, I know that some of these “babies” are Artist Proclivities, and I cannot consciously tell them no when I know it literally helps them to focus.
