These genre-hopping instrumentals will add some ambiance to your next design session. Sometimes a little background music can set the right tone for dedicated heads-down time, and these trusty tracks have worked well for LUMA facilitators! Queue up your favorite songs or just hit shuffle.

Caveat: Sometimes all you need is silence. Songs without lyrics tend to work well as background music for facilitated sessions, but don’t be afraid to go without music. Read the room — or ask your participants if they prefer quietude or background noise. There is great debate about the best way to utilize music during design sessions, but sometimes the right song at the right moment can really make a session sing!
