Thanks so much for all of the information. I was googling music in the classroom and came across your site. I teach fifth grade and would like to begin incorporating music (as background) in my classroom for some parts of the day. However, I'm not up on itunes or players and was wondering if anyone had suggestions for cd's that could be purchased? I read about Dr. Jean on amazon, but wasn't sure if that would be young for fifth graders. I'm thinking of starting with classical, but didn't know if there were any other suggestions for more fast paced music that would be "safe" to play? I'll have to take a look at the television tunes website - that sounds great! Thanks for your advice.
