The Music of the Spheres in Education: Using Astronomically Inspired Music

The Music of the Spheres in Education: Using Astronomically Inspired Music

We list and briefly describe over a hundred pieces of classical and popular music inspired by reasonable astronomical ideas, and we discuss ways that instructors (and those working in informal settings) can use music to enhance an astronomy class or program. Written and web-based resources for exploring astronomical influences in music are also provided.
