I love anything Celtic and is my number one choice. After that then old school Rock - Robert Plant, Led Zeppelin, Fleetwood Mac. Then girl music- Sarah McLaughlin, Adele, Emeli Sande and of course The Spice Girls!
When I am feeling like I need my Mom around I listen to Classical, the set I gave her when she was in Hospice Care.
It all depends on my mood and what I am working on. Sometimes low and quiet and other times loud and rocking!
When I am teaching there is no music on at all, the silence is sometimes deafening. Only once did a student offer to use their music during class. I need to ask what they would prefer..... quiet or music.
Do you listen to music while you are working? Or do you need quiet to work? How bout if you teach, do you put music on? Let me know what you do in your studio.
