I always write and grade papers with music in the background.

Current Selections:

  • Sarah Walker, "Rule, Britannia" (Last Night at the Proms, 1989)
  • Jimmy Greene, "Beautiful Life" (Jimmy Greene Music Works)
    Sample "Beautiful Life"
    “Beautiful Life” was composed and recorded by Jimmy Greene as a memorial for his daughter Ana, who was 6 years old when she and 19 other first graders were killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School. The words "remember me" are repeated twenty times, once for each child who lost a life. The sample above includes selections from “Maybe” and “Little Voices.”
