Music can be used to enhance the mood of a class and used properly, can take students to new places. However, it's best to set the student's expectations up front. If you have a time-slot that is normally a quiet class and you introduce music, it may not work.

I also agree that the music be devoid of lyrics. You don't want it to compete with your message, but enhance it.

I have attended a few classes with live electric-violin. It was awesome. Fortunately, the teacher used a PA system so we could hear her over the music.

As much as I love a peaceful Ashtanga class, I think it would be a total blast to do a Vinyasa class to a DJ with some really heavy Drum & Bass, almost to the level of aerobics. The DJ could follow the mood of the class and bring it down near the end.

In your situation, if you try to cater to one student to, you may lose the others. Make sure the students know what your class is about and stick to it.
