Playlists by Subject

I’ve been using Spotify for a while to organize the music I use in my classes. I do not intend for these lists to be comprehensive, just a resource for interest or inspiration.

I’ll be slowly adding to the list now and then, so check back. If there’s something you’d like to see, drop me a note — maybe I’ve already got a playlist for it!

  • Rhythm
    • Beat: This playlist could be endless, of course, but it is rather brief. I use it to explore different perceptions of what a beat is (an increasingly fuzzy word these days.) This list is likely to frequently change!
    • Changing Meters: some on this list or more perceptible or more predictable than others.
    • 5/4: a short list with a mix of genres and approaches to groupings of 5.
    • 7: A similar one for meters of 7.
    • 6/8 vs. 3/4
