I think Kids on the Slope is the best music-related anime I've seen so far. But aside from the ones mentioned already you can try La Corda d' Oro or Uta no Prince-sama Maji 1000%. The story revolves more on specialized music schools. It's more for the teenager bracket and lacks the realism factor that Nodame Cantabile offers though.

Uta no Prince-sama & NANA are good music animes.

I just started watching La Corda d' Oro on CR

Haven't given Nodame Cantabile a try yet though as I'm a bit of a noob relating to music genre series. Well, now that you mentioned it.

I agree with this sentiment. Nodame is a fairly mature series, though nothing too heady or excessively serious. La corda d'oro does have some lovely music, but the series itself is mostly vapid, shoujo fluff.

Its kinda funny how a band was created to promote the anime Kaikan Phrase when it first came out in 1999. I was always wondering about that when I first saw the anime not too long ago.So this fabricated band , carried the names of the anime characters except for the lead singer Makoto san. Then the band broke up in 2003.

I added more link of the song this band Lucifer performed which was used in the anime , in the page 1 of this thread. Their music videos are actually pretty good.

What, no mention of Detroit Metal City, lol. I loved it, although its completely different from these other shows. Crass comedy lampooning death metal.
And although Cowboy Bebop isn't about music, the music is heavily integrated into the style of the show, and there is a big connection with Kid's on the Slope.

DMC heavy metal music with trashy lyrics .....very funny show but abit too much for me but i watched it anyway.Its directed by Nagahama sensei and I just met him today at his panel and autograph session ha ha ha. He is actually pretty fond of that one.

Anyway Yoko Kanno produced and composed the musical scores for those 2, thats the big connection

An anime that is centered around jazz music is pretty rare. But below are some suggestions that focus heavily on music that isn't J-pop.

Beck: Mongolian Chop Squad (mostly rock)
Nodame Cantabile (classical)
Cowboy Bebop (yoko kanno produced the music for this so it sounds good)
Nana (J-rock ish)

La Corda may involve music but it's a blatant reverse harem. The music kind of takes a back seat to the bishounen. (Not saying I didn't like it)

Sorry, make that two, both Directed by Shinichiro Watanabe, you can see his strong integration of music into style. Also Samurai Chapamploo with hip hop. He was involved with music on Michiko to Hatchin, I thought he was involved more with it since its style reminded me a lot of Bebop.

Yoko Kanno is also the music producer for kids on the slope, no suprise there. Ive been a Yoko Kanno fan forever, The music is one of the things that hooked me on anime in the first place

Whats wrong with k-on except they didn't play enough music. The OSTs are great and I understand it's some of the most downloaded music in Japan and lots of bands seem to be covering it. Also Cowboy Bebop isn't about music(some good stuff though)so what about Bleach there's some great music in that too, and Bakemono Gatari.

Guess I have to suggest you watch (and read) Detroit Metal City.
It's a very amusing series about a boy who dreams of being a chic pop artist, but ends up in a hardcore death metal band
