Re: MUSIC in the art room

I also occationally let the kids play their own music (high school level) any
noise problems or inappropriate language in the music and it gets turned off.
My biggest problem is one group not wanting to listen to what the other group
wants or wanting to "baby sit" the CD player and change songs, I tell them if
we can't listen to the entire CD straigh through don't bring it.... In the
event that there are too many problems we sometimes listen to MY music...
