NMM: September Contemporary Playlist

It been a while since I’ve done a New Music Monday post, so I thought I’d share my updated music from my contemporary classes.

I’m teaching a beginning contemporary class this year of ages 10-14, instead of just my usual 15 and up class, so it has been a challenge to find some music that is relatable to a 10-year old.  In fact, when I tried playing the slower, lyrical-type music for the younger class, they asked if I had any faster or “fun” music.

So far (third week in), I have found a balance of “fun” and “serious” music keeps everyone happy – we are working on emotions in combinations, but then we keep it more upbeat during technique portions.  What do you find works best for this age group?
