I like classical quite a bit for background.
Here are some of my choices.:
Four Seasons ~ Vivaldi
Beethoven's 5th Symphony
TEOC - Symphony No. 06 - Beethoven | Full Length 45 Minutes
Mozart - Symphony No. 40 in G minor, K. 550 [complete]
Mozart Flute & Harp Concerto C major K 299 Neville Marriner RTSI
Mozart Piano Concerto No.21 in C major, 'Elvira Madigan' K.467
It is my opinion that listening to Bach's Brandenburg Concertos is truly 'busy bee' motivation, but the students generally like Beethoven the best.
J.S. Bach Brandenburg Concertos, Complete, Ton Koopman
We do know that Mozart is the best soundtrack--based on decades of research. Kids like it, too.
