Friday Freebie: The absolutely BEST site for background music! Bar None!

If your students ever need some great background music for a video project today's Friday Freebie site is the place to go! FreePlayMusic has the best collection of musical beds anywhere! at last count they had over 7200 individual tracks!

You can search by CD (with titles like "Action and Adventure", "Hot Guitar Rock", and "Piano Solos") or search by style (ambient, comedy, drama, etc) or search by feel (cinematic, eerie, urgent). The great thing is, most tracks come in a variety of lengths, from full songs to 60 seconds, 30 seconds, 20 seconds, and 10 second stingers. Download the mp3 file you need and use it in your presentation or video.

And, it's FREE to use for personal use and for student projects. Their licensing agreement reads:
FPM (FreePlayMusic) grants free master recording and synchronization rights to students, to the FPM Production Music Library, excluding the FPM Indie Artist and Sound Effects Library, when FPM music is used by students within a school or class assignment. The assignment must be part of student curriculum, must only be viewed or heard within the classroom, campus, on a school’s closed circuit television and/or public announcement system and shall be free from any charge or admission fee. Free Student Educational Use excludes the use by any school in extra-curricular activities including, without limitation, the use in clubs and the use of any kind in performance, non-broadcast multimedia, DVD duplication, distribution and/or broadcast on a public or educational access TV, cable or radio channel, web, blog, and podcast.
Check it out for yourself and see. If you ask me, FreePlayMusic is the ONLY place to go.
