It makes a lot of sense. Especially electronic music because it has a tendecy to be repetative.
I listen to the music when I study, work and it’s mostly instrumental, ambiental music because otherwise I focus too much on the music rather than work.
Creating music can really make a person develop a focus, even more so if it’s a form of expression.
I think learning that learning the songs just so you know them can be really counterproductive. More so because you don’t understand the logic behind it. I became better at all of this once I found the way to understand the reasoning behind all of that and music teachers tend to overlook that aspect and can’t really explain it to students.
