I would call it the #1 question that I have been emailed. What music can I listen to on my mission? And, What music player can I take on my mission? These are questions with constantly changing answers. When I was on my mission over 12 years ago, we used cd players with built in speakers. They were approved for our mission, by our mission president. At first, we were only allowed to listen to Church music. However, I remember that about halfway through my mission, word came out that we could now listen to ‘uplifting’ music that was ‘appropriate’ as well as Church music. My Mission President did not have any additions to that rule. We were allowed to decide what was ‘uplifting’ as well as ‘appropriate’ mission music. Missionaries varied on what they considered uplifting. I would say that most tried to listen to Church music, classical music, Enya type music and other Spiritually uplifting melodies.

Christmas music was always allowed. One companion listened to it during the summer. He was homesick the day he left his mother’s womb.

So, you will really need to check with the appropriate people before taking any music with you to the MTC or your mission. Here is a list of some Music players that are convenient to pack around and use as portable quality players.

One more thing. We were NEVER allowed to listen to music with headphones. It seems like a good rule. Keeps open communication between your companion without isolating yourself.

Can I take an IPod with Speakers on my mission? Good question. Ask your Mission President
