Music is a powerful tool that can be used to enhance the learning for trainees and set the tone for
the learning experience. When planning your training and learning sessions, identify times and
activities where music can be included, such as:

• To set the mood.
• At the beginning and at the end of the training and learning experience.
• During breaks.
• To draw participants back to a large group activity.
• As background during cooperative and individual activities.

When planning your training and learning sessions, incorporate a variety of music to enhance the
learning for the participants. Ask participants what types of music they would like to hear during
the learning experience. Ask participants to bring music to the learning experience they would
like to hear. Share your favorite music with the participants.

The following is a list of favorite music used by Marsha Forest and Jack Pearpoint.


We are frequently asked how to get the music we use at our workshops. We are pleased to
provide the information. We love the atmosphere set by the following tapes:

• Anything by Carlos Nakai and his Native American Flute Music is wonderful. Our two

favorites are the tapes "Journeys" and "Changes."
• Strutz and Farah: "Americas," "Mosaico," or “Primal Magic." (Masa Records).
• Another popular tape is "Baka Beyond Spirit of the Forest." (Rykodisk).
• "Outback" is also on the Rykodisk label.
• Otmar Liebert plus Luna Negra is on the Sony label.
