Music in lessons
« on: February 08, 2013, 11:00:33 AM »
I was just wondering if anyone can recommend any quite/calming classical (though it doesn't have to be!) mood music that they have used as background in lessons that the children have enjoyed and responded welt to?  ::)

I find Brimful of Asha goes down quite well actually. Not really calming or anything, but most classes actually quite seem to like it and work well to that sort of thing. I wonder if the non-vocal stuff by people like David Guetta would work OK? :-)

One of the Year 11 classes I had last year and a whole pile of kids in it who were really into rock music, so they got a specially done classic rock playlist (Smoke on the Water etc...) which was very amusing. I tend to find louder music is better at that age - they just talk over the quieter stuff.

The XX are quite calming and a little more modern than classical. I usually use pinao music as it often varies less in tempo and pitch.

Yes, XX would be good - quite trendy as well.

The world is your oyster with Spotify. Can get the class to create playlists with suitable music.

On a different theme, I do that as part of the IB work with population policies. Certainly some interesting choices for pro-natalist!!

Escala works well. They were on Britains got Talent a few years ago.  No lyrics and calming slightly funky classical tunes.
