Nature sounds with an acoustic guitar playing in the background often help me to relax and get ready for meditation. Classical music often helps as well. I would suggest that you try a fee different types and see which is most beneficial to you.

I absolutely agree with Lonicera .The best music for, me when it comes to meditation ,is nature sounds .Different people will attune easier to different sounds ,and not so easier to another type sounds .It will depend mainly on your mentality .
Think about what kind of music makes you feel relaxed , calm and use this type .Also you can do some experimenting around with different types and see which one is best for you .
Avoid music which contains lyrics and clearly auduble words ,which repeat at certain intervals of time .Otherwise you can find yourself distracted , and your mind can start singing or repating the lyricks (words ) and you will loose your focus .
Go here and experiment with the may styles of free mediation music, nature sounds, chanting, drums, etc. Find the one that calls to your soul and aligns your chakras, the style that makes you feel at peace. it is diffident for everyone, and even for one person your moods and desires may require different types of music. Music is a universal phenomenon, across all tribes, and cultures of mankind music is created, it is something we all instinctively need, and it is shown to change the vibration frequencies within us producing consistent results within us.
Blessed be all who use the Magick of the Gods

Much like with study for basic topics for tests, not everyone can expect soothing music with no lyrics and such to help them concentrate while studying or this case Meditation. Usually for me I listen to heavy metal and such because its what my mind feels comfortable with. So I suggest using your favourite music, I have no hate towards the "Trance and Meditation beats" but sometimes it just doesn't work.
