Skating Music

This page contains a list of some musical selections used in competitive skating programs by various amateur/eligible skaters. This list isn't necessarily complete; these are just pieces that I recognize, that have been identified on TV broadcasts, or that other people have told me about.

Can't find it here? Tadaaki Masuda maintains another list of skating music.
