My intention for using music in my classes is to help you connect to something deeper inside yourself.  I want you to FEEL the music and so it does not play quietly in the background.  It's bold and emotional and fun.  Some songs are going to make you want to shake your booty and some are going to make you want to close your eyes and take a deep breath (and maybe even cry a little).  "Music is what feelings sound like" -Georgia Cates, Beauty from Surrender
