It is advised to study with classical music as it has a soothing effect on the body. it is also said the it reduces blood pressure and pulse rate which allows better concentration. Plan and design an experiment to invistigate if the above is correct.

Hello! :)
So, if I were to design an experiment testing the hypothesis, I'd probably do this:
Firstly, you would determine your independent and dependent variables. ind=type of music, and dep=concentration, pulse rate, and blood pressure.
You could design an experiment in which someone is left to study certain material for 15 minutes, in which their pulse and blood pressure are checked in 3 minute incraments. At the end, they could then be quizzed over the material they studied, to see how well they retained it. You could try it with rock, classical, and rap. You would also need to provide a control group (a group that is tested with no music), to be able to compare the results to. At the end of this experiment, the results could then be compared to prove or disprove the hypothesis.

I hope that that made sense, and helped! If you have any questions or need anything else, please let me know!
