Music Streaming: Spotify

The quickest way to access a world of music is through a music streaming service. There are services dedicated to classical music, like Naxos Music Library, but the best popular services (Spotify, Apple Music, Pandora, Amazon Music) have regularly added classical music to their popular music catalog.

To get the most out of this course, we recommend a Spotify account. We’ve created playlists for each lesson on both of those services. It will be easy to follow along with the music you are learning, and you can import the playlists to your own account and use them as the basis for playlists of your own as you find works that you enjoy.

Additional Video Streaming: YouTube

You can also access video playlists of the performances from each lesson at the Compass Classroom YouTube channel. Be sure to hit the Subscribe button so you get notified of additional playlists and videos released for all our other products!
