🎼   “Alexa, play classical study music.”


I built a neat voice application that gives Alexa the ability to instantly play Bach in the background— optimally allowing you to study, concentrate on your latest project, or simply provide the light ambiance to fill the room. For many, including myself, light classical music can help with concentration and meditation.

In 2017, Classical Study Music has had 20,500 unique users and 164,000 total sessions 🎉
