I might play classical or some calming music when students are writing. At other times I play classic rock or older songs. In a way, I do find that any music is disruptive but it depends on the class/activity.

One thing I never do is play THEIR music. I tell them that from the start. With the swearing and arguing it causes, it's too disruptive. I also tell them that if they complain, the music goes off.

There are times where I let students listen to their own music on headphones. A lot of times they will sit together and share headphones with a friend. I actually find that this keeps the talking down and is a good incentive for them to work or they will "lose" their music/seat.
