Music Monday: Instrumental

Happy Monday! Well, we’ll pretend it’s happy…

My students know that every Friday, we write. They all have journals and they are free to write about any topic. Part of this process is me putting music on to inspire them. I learned quickly that music with lyrics in English are distracting; I play instrumental, classical, or world music instead. And I love it, because it exposes them to music that they would never have heard otherwise. For Music Monday, here are some of my favorite instrumental pieces that I play for my students.

Explosions in the Sky First Breath After Coma

DJ Shadow Organ Donor

Braveheart Sons of Scotland

That’s what we’re listening to! Any favorite instrumental albums? I’m always looking for new stuff.
