Creative Funeral Music Ideas

Your music selection is one of the most important items in your funeral or memorial service planning.

The music is what people will remember more than anything else.

Music is incredibly healing. It has an amazing power to communicate our feelings.

Choosing the music is twofold. Select songs that were important to the deceased, but also include songs that are meaningful to those that are left behind. 

Here are our listings of music categories, including rock, classic, country, children's songs, heaven and angel songs, instrumental, background music selections, jazz and blues, Christian songs and hymns.
