Abstract:
Nowadays, music can be considered as a part of our lives. Even when studying or working, people tends to listen to music while finishing their task. Studying this topic is important to understand whether music is affecting our performance, thus we can decide if we should or should not listen to music while working. The researcher tested 79 members of ITB Student Orchestra to retype a short story in three different conditions: instrumental music, lyrical music, and no music. The researcher found that instrumental music significantly increased the students’ typing speed. The researcher also found that there is no significant difference of typing performance between the instrumental music, lyrical music, and no music group. Therefore, the researcher recommend that students or employees should not worry about their music preferences when listening to music when doing a typing task, since there is no significant difference between instrumental and lyrical music. The researcher also recommends students and employees to listen to instrumental music while doing a typing task, since it increased typing speed.
