Kia Ora! My name is Amanda, and I am a certified Spinning Instructor. I taught at various studios around Boston for the past year, but have recently made a career change working for an indoor cycling full time on the management side in New York City. I am not currently teaching, but am going to keep up with this little blog I like to call spinmuse that has 588 individual suggestions for songs to ride to with teaching notes, or 5 gigs of music, or 1.7 days of music to pan through. I hope you can find something you enjoy on here!
I got the idea of starting this blog after googling “spin music” so many times and coming across the same types of top 40, classic rock suggestions for spinning. I wanted to throw some of my playlists and profiles out there for others to use, and to discover some great new artists or remixes out there. The best part about spin music is you don’t have to love what you’re listening to, but as long as it works for the scenery and emotions you want to evoke during the ride, then it’s great! Personally, I love the songs I play, and wanted to share them with you so you can add some variety to your playlists.
You can find me on twitter (@spinmuse), facebook (spinmuse), and I have an iTunes Ping account under “amanda bucci” (that is not as well kept as I wish it would be… anyone else have problems publishing playlists?) as well as a Spotify account under spinmuse, in which I will post the playlists as best I can (some of the songs are unavailable on iTunes and Spotify and therefore won’t show up in Ping or Spotify). To mimick a playlist, you will have to check the blog entry. Contact me if you ever need help finding a song that I have posted but is unavailable on iTunes or Spotify, and I can point you in the right direction on where to find it (amandaleighbucci at gmail dot com)
On any given playlist, you can find anything from pop, rock & classic rock, indie, hip-hop, electronic, house, glitch-hop, and dubstep on here. Variety is KEY for spin classes!
Thanks for checking out my blog, and leave me a note – I love new friends. Even if they are virtual.
