    Anna usually does her homework with classical music

    I am not sure if my sentence sounds natural. Would you please correct my mistakes?

    Anna usually does her homework with classical music on her stereo, which she will never dare to admit to her friends, who see anyone who listens to classical music as an oddball.

    Re: Anna usually does her homework with classical music

    teechar,
    I wanted to say that she is doing her homework while listening to classical music on her stereo.
    Would my sentence be correct like this:

    Anna usually does her homework while listening to classical music on her stereo, which she will never dare to admit to her friends, who see anyone who listens to classical music as an oddball.

    Your title would work better for me with to instead of with.
