I updated my ipod last night and all of my songs got wiped. 4,000 songs, gone. A few songs were corrupted and it’s aborting the resync so after many hours, I’ve figured a temporary work-around on another device.
BUT, I’m starting to think I should move over to Spotify. I don’t teach with a lot of 32-beat consistent music any more, so for a monthly subscription, I could just make playlists and play music in class. No more hassle with itunes.
I use very few ZIN materials from Zumba. Almost none. Are there any Zumba instructors here who use no ZIN music at all and just Spotify?
I am a ZIN instructor. I do not use much ZIN music, I also do not use streaming services. I use Mix Meister (MixMeister.com) and make my own playlists. Most of my class members are 40 and older, so I tend to blend current hits with oldies and international music for all my classes. Of course nowadays oldies includes music from the 80’s and 90’s! I change my playlists every week (but that is more for me than my students), always keeping some popular hits and varying the oldies and my favorite alternative music. It does take time, but it something I really enjoy, so I do not mind.
For Zumba I do try to hold with their recommended 70% international, but I find the members seem to sing along with the oldies more than anything else. Some class non ZIN favorites include At The Hop (Danny and the Juniors), Surfing Safari (Beach Boys), Work This Body (Walk the Moon), Do You Love Me (Guster),and Saturday Nights Alright For Fighting(Elton John).
