Introduction: Listen to Music in Class!

Picture of Listen to Music in Class!

This is something I do on almost a day to day basis. And it is almost impossible to get caught.

Heres what you need:

1. A long-sleeved article of clothing (hoodie or otherwise)
2. Pocket music player of your choice (Zune ftw!)
3. Headphones. And the ear bud kind.

Step 1: Step 1

Picture of Step 1


Thread earbuds up through hoodie and through one of the arm sleeves.

Get a playlist up then turn off player, so all you have to do is press on then play.

*dotted line in picture means beneath hoodie

Step 2: Step 2

Now tuck the earbuds under the cuff and listen to your tunes through the hoodie material.

You can casually lean your head on your hand, just make sure your ear is on your wrist. Or you can lay on your desk and cross your arms.

You can now jam to your tunes in class!

In the UK a lot of schools have blazers included in the uniform and they have jnside pockets on both sides so it works with blazers too

All I did was sowed a pocket in side the jacket so I could put my phone some where. And I used my phone

It works

If they don't allow you to wear hoodies, what about long hair, and having your ear buds run through your back? I'm male and it works, lol

Aside from music players being banned from my school, I expect my students to have some manners and remove their headgear indoors.

Eric95 (author)Kiteman2009-11-19

Now, why would you ban music players? They're great for breaks. In my school in swened we're allowed to listen to music during long math classes. Oh, and I can understand that it's a bad manner to use headgear in class, but INDOORS? The hallways are practically made for listening to music during breaks.

Kiteman (author)Eric952009-11-19
It wasn't my ban, but it is for a combination of reasons;
  • Discipline (we want them to pay attention in lessons)
  • Security (school insurance doesn't cover them in they get stolen, lost or broken)
We often allow them on school trips, but we experimented recently with banning them, and not allowing texting or phoning on the bus and we found that the children started talking to each other, discussing the trip, behaving like civilised humans, instead of isolated zombies.

its easier to just wear the hood and put the headphones on inside the hood..

Zapperz (author)willdabeast2009-08-13

What if you cant wear hoods at school so this would be perfect !

z3r0 (author)2009-08-01

I have long hair so no one notices if I have earphones in... I <3 my SkullCandy earbuds.

RedFlash (author)2009-05-15

My school only allows their stuff. (No hoodies...) And I am in Australia so I can't do this...

thermoelectric (author)2009-03-16

Great, But what happens if you live in a place where you need the air conditioner more than the heater and you will never wear a hoodie because you will nearly sweat to death? (No offence)

zoltor100 (author)thermoelectric2009-04-01

Run it up out of the neck of your shirt.
If you have long hair *ahem:)* it's a plus.

To keep the cord from forming unwanted slack, loop it around the top of your ear.

thermoelectric (author)zoltor1002009-04-01

;-( Dang, Why do I need to have short hair....

xproplayer (author)2009-02-11

on i like to do in in school suspension is put mp3 in from pocket run it under your shirt then you have to wear a hoodie then drape the headphones over the shirt and between outer layer of shirt and inner layer of hoodie then be careful with volume and you have to be by yourself it works really well

crashedagain (author)2008-10-31

There's an even better way to do this... thread it through the actual hood, so you can just pull up your hood and listen. If you position them properly, it's not visible at all. Just put the mp3 player in the front pocket, if you have one, and cut a small hole for the cord to go up to the hood next to your body. Oh, and something that people always seem to forget... you have to make sure that other people can't hear your music. There was a guy in my class back in high school who used to do this all the time, but his music was seriously loud enough that you could hear it a couple of feet away. Even if it's just the drumline, it's enough to get you caught.

Some schools don't allow the hood to be up over your head because they think you are listining to music or that you are trying to be a gangsta.

Gage987 (author)crashedagain2009-01-30

they make hoodies that have a pocket for a mp3/iPod/Zune and a hole for headphones like on a bookbag with the 4 bendy triangles to thread the phones through

Man the buds in the hood or sleeve trick, those were the days (only 2 days ago). The best thing to do is to get a big sweatshirt that goes up your neck like a collar. Then put the earphones in there. works great.

rotora0 (author)2008-12-09

im a ten year old in 5th grade and am not aloud to were hood and/or hats in class how do i do this like are you aloud to in middle,high or college???

King Crab (author)rotora02009-01-04

Lol. You don't wear the hood or a hat. You thread it up your sleeve and lean on your hand where the earbuds are.

daelans (author)2008-12-20
