Our new computer came with iheart radio. I found a lovely classical music station and have been playing it most of the day. It seems like Molly is hanging closer to the room with the music and when she looks up at me, she's having a calm, happy expression. (Or maybe the music is calming me down and that's making her happy!)
I have not played classical for a while, the radio stations no longer carry it. Our animal shelter often played classical in their "cat room". A few years ago I would play acoustic guitar once in a while - our previous dog hated it - she would leave the room!
The only response I see from the current dogs we have is some head tilting.We had a Bloodhound here that would howl and bay to music.If you've ever heard a Bloodhound,you will know that you can't miss them!
yeah, my dog responds to music. when i pick up
my guitar he leaves the room.
My parent's lab would howl whenever my sister played the violin
Whenever I hear a song I like with a good beat I'll dance around and the dogs will join in but it's probably them picking up on my mood then the music itself

Yes during my recording sessions they would usually fall asleep by my amp. During synth sound design certain sound frequency is an automatic fall asleep to where other specific sounds are OMG I am running out of this room! When I take Kaylee out in the car I run demo tracks for a surround test phase usually she falls asleep, lol. I get the same response from my rattie he usually hangs out on my shoulder chilling out next to my head phones. If he picks up a sound during design phase it and it disturbs him he will immediately smack the crap out of me, lol.
My mom had a friend who taught her teacup poodle to lie on its back and throw its paws up in the air at certain points in a particular upbeat song, in perfect time to the beat of the music. The dog seemed to think it was very funny, and it would only to it to that song.
Mine love it when I sing to them. They're all smiles and wiggles when I sing them a children's song or old jingle, with the words changed to be about that dog. Try it!
Mine will often go to sleep when I have quiet, calm music on in the background. Years ago, I had some instrumental music-for-pets CDs that I used to leave in the CD changer when we had puppies, and there was less mischief during the day when it was on repeat in the background.
I think I'm going to by the CD from Through a Dogs Ear (which was posted about last week here) that contains "driving music," to see if it helps calm my blind guy who is so miserable during car trips.
My dog goes and sticks his nose in my daughter's saxophone when she's playing it. I don't know how he can stand to get so close to the awful squawking. She says that he'll just come stand in her room and listen when she's practicing.

Every night for about an hour I turn up the music (not too loud), and clean up the birds room, vaccuum, etc. Echo and I sing out loud and have a grand old time. Kyleigh leaves the room and goes upstairs to see my dad! (Who is watching TV and it's cranked!)
So, not sure if it's my music, or my singing that makes her leave the room!
