I budgeted a sterio system for my art department and joined a music club for
a year to develop a CD library. I only play classical music, contemporary
music, some showtunes- the CD's that art club attend during the chool year
such as the theatre production of such as performances of Cats, Stomp,
Nutcracker, etc. I do not allow them to play any CD's of their own, whether
it be classical or not. That way I do not have to monitor and censor music.
At first, some complain. I kept it on low. After awhile, I will get
requests for me to turn up the volume and ask, "who is this" I even have
students wanted to tape off of the CD's to take home. Occasionally I will
play music from the 50's, 60's 70's. A lot of jazz. Music seems to set a
mood, create an environment. Different courses ofen need different music.
My printmakers tend to be the students with every body part pierced and skin
tatooed. For them I play more Bob Dylon and John Prine, Doors, etc. It
works better for them. Music is always secondary but we have so much in
