New Age music meditation can be a great aid to concentration. Not only can it help to center you for the meditation but the vibrations of repeated tones and droning basslines can physically help to open up your energy centers or chakras. This along with the repetitive rhythm and sequences can be almost hypnotic or trance like in nature which can greatly assist in entering a meditative state.
There are also some new age CDs that contain guided meditations with calming music in the background and a soothing voice taking you on a journey into your self, this is another common new age music meditation form.
