"Music is the motivation that lets your blade paint your canvas of ice," Dan hollander
The choice of music and the editing of it for a competition or show program is very important. It can make or break the overall feeling of the performance. Elements that need to be considered are as follows:
- The flow of the music from one section to another.
- Recognizing when a certain piece of music is better for a footwork section, and where that needs to be incorporated within the program (communicating with the choreographer).
- If there is a similar, but more appropriate piece of music that is a stronger fit for the skater?
- Would sound effects help highlight an element which can be added after the program is choreographed?

Imagine a program created to counts of six and eight without music. Then, a music engineer creates sound effects and a back beat to match everything. That is the power of a good music editor. Check out this program with the full explanation here or watch the program below:
