Music and Football Training

Maybe you're wondering what music has to do with football. A lot, I would say. One advantage of having players listen to music while training is that it lessens their focus on the physical strains of training and let's them redirect their attention to enjoying what they're doing because of the music.

Take for example the challenge of running and juggling. Running can improve stamina and juggling improves ball control and technical ability. But each exercise can be frustrating in the beginning. It takes a lot of practice, patience and discipline. But if players in the field can hear some upbeat music like some techno beat with riffs from Kawai Keyboards and guitar melodies, this may help them get motivated to continue instead of feeling frustrated which can make them give up easily. Try this during practice and see what happens.
