YouTube Audio Library

YouTube has launched a music library of 150 royalty-free audio tracks that can be used in any video, even those that are not uploaded to YouTube. These audio files can be streamed or downloaded as MP3 files. Genres range from alternative & punk to classical to rock and roll. There is also music for any mood such as angry, happy, sad, or inspirational. This is a tremendous resource for students to tap into when selecting background music for their multimedia projects!
