put on some music

Reply Tue 24 Feb, 2009 01:53 am
When the ballet programme ended, Jane put on some music and began to imagine herself as a ballerina. She swayed and spun to the rhythm of the music.

Is 'put on' the correct verb?

Many thanks.

Yes - it's fine. You could also say, 'Jane put on a cd (or a record) and began to imagine herself a ballerina...'

"put on some music" is an idiom. It comes from the past, when records were placed (put on) the record player.

You could use "played" also.
