What are some good examples of Peabody music to check out/youtube? I have an astonishing amount of store credit with Google Play, too, I can take advantage of.
As a beginner I would recommend any Ragtime style music that has a single steady beat. Think march style - Alexander's Ragtime Band, or Al Jolson's Mammy. Also Manhattan Transfer has a great rendition of Mr. Sandman.
That should get you started.
