Copyright-free Music

You must have the copyright to use any music you add to your video. 

  1. Jamendo hosts a large collection of music you can download legally for free.
  2. Bowdoin has a free music directory and has given permission for some student works to be used in Bowdoin multimedia productions.
  3. There are few places where you can find free music, such as GarageBand, within iMovie and Final Cut Pro software for music and video-making for Macs, which has demonstration jingles and sound effects.

You might also want to start on DigiTale's music-compilation page, which has a list of many sites, as well as some good tips on using copyright-free music and sounds.
