There’s so much good music that it’s hard to know where to begin. I’ll start with something I used today. It was the last class in the summer session for Mountain View students, and I used some old standards for warm-up.
If you click the “Play” button below, you can hear 30 to 60 seconds of the song. On the playbar that comes up, volume control is just to the left of the graphic that looks like a speaker. It’s a vertical fader. I’ve reduced the volume of these songs in hopes they won’t be too loud. The default volume setting is in the middle of the fader, so you can make the volume louder yourself.
If you don’t close the playbar, it will go on to the next song (when you’re viewing the entire post). This music-playing applet is available from Yahoo and it’s free. Click where it says “learn more” for details.
The Amazon graphic takes you to Amazon’s website, where you can hear a different sample from the same song. Same for the iTunes button.
