    Please supply in the above format (noting if PPL license needed or if we have permission), and email your suggestions to info@psalmsandstretchec.com with "Music Recommendation" as the subject heading - thank you!

We recommend using instrumental music for the following reasons:

* To be accessible to those who aren't Christians.
* To avoid class being "cheesy"...
* To give more space for thinking and meditating on the Psalm.
* To not distract from the instructions you are giving.
If you want to use the odd song with words, especially during reflection/relaxation time then this can be at your discretion, but it is not our recommendation to use music with words throughout.
