M.A. in math, 1971. The math in music is very simple -- integer ratios, 12th root of 2.... but not any help with actually playing. Playing is much closer to athletics than math, it's doing physical things precisely in real time.

You say, "I'm very much a man." (By the way, what does that mean?) "A few male students would be turned off." (Why?) You're definitely contradicting yourself and following the modern gender identity politics agenda of confusion.

As an engineer I'm comfortable with math. I've never thought there was much overlap if any between music and math. The only exception I can think of personally is transposing. It's not that different from a mathematical transform like the Laplac

Schumann's Träumerei from Kinderszenen could also work well, in my opinion. At my mother's memorial service there was no instrument to play in the chapel (!!), so I gave the attendant a CD with explicit instructions which track to play. Instead

I was a math major (uk B.Sc.) and taught for a year then followed music as a life career (pop!). I still have a math bent but don't see any useful connection between musical and mathematical thinking other than on the most basic level.
