Musical factors or M-factors of background music that influence work performance include various musical attributes such as tonality, genre, loudness, and melodic complexity. Although many previous studies have focused on the effects of M-factors, few studies have focused specifically on the effects of temporal changes in background music. Research has indicated that working performance has a tendency to increase or decrease while participants listen to music, however the corresponding relationship between M-factors and working performance has not been clarified. Therefore, we decided to investigate the relationship between the level of excitement of background music and the level of concentration among a group of subjects according to their Kraepelin test scores. The classical music is thought to be beneficial for performing simple tasks. All participants were young people aged 18 to 24 years. The test was administered as the participants listened to the classical music. Participants were instructed to wear a pair of electrooculography glasses so that temporal changes in music could be measured against concentration and fatigue. The goal of this study was to investigate whether background music could boost learning efficiency in classroom settings.
