We've seen families struggle with selecting good funeral music. It would help if you chose something noteworthy while avoiding upsetting family members or other attendees. Here are some helpful hints from Blair Mazzarella Funeral Home to help you in selecting the best options:

1. Classical Music

Classical music is the safest choice because it is soothing. Several violin and piano solos are ideal for funerals, and the music has an expressive beat and a relaxing vibe. Cellos and violins can help portray the raw emotion of the human voice, so you'll be able to find something acceptable.

2. Favorite Musical Works

Many families choose their loved one's favorite genres, songs, or singers for funerals. Although they may not be the best option, they lend a personal touch to the funeral ceremony. You must ensure that the songs and tunes you choose are appropriate for the occasion and will not create undue stress for the people present. Discuss your options with your family and add music to your playlist once they've been approved.

3. Distinctive Music

Occasionally, family members choose tunes that are unique and represent their loved one's personality. They select music with lyrics that resonate and comfort the bereaved family. Although this option is not without risk, it is a unique approach to customize the funeral service.

It's advisable to talk to close family members about your alternatives and get their feedback. Always check to see if anyone has any issues with your choices before finalizing your playlist. You can provide the funeral director with your funeral playlist, and they will make sure it is played during the funeral service.
