Royalty Free Music section provides you with the resources you need to

complete a variety of educational, personal, and non-profit projects.   Make sure you are on the FREE page.  Some of the music is royalty free, but you have to buy the rights.  They do have ONE free page that they use to rotate free music in and out of.  Recently, we've had to log in to do it, so we created one school log in that we share with classes that need 'quick and easy' free music.  We find this a good starting point when you need music  quickly initially.  Later the kids can explore other sites.

5. Other sites with music you and your students can use legally.   (You

can do a Google Search for any of these and more.
