Where to Get Free Stock Music

If you’re taking a video production course you may find yourself in need of a soundtrack. As you’ll soon learn, using copyrighted music from your iTunes library isn’t legal, unless you are willing to pay hundreds to obtain permission from the artist. That’s where stock music comes in. Stock music is royalty-free, so that means you won’t get sued for using it or have your video taken down from YouTube. And if you ever decided to sell your video or broadcast it on TV, you’ll be able to. Stock music can cost anywhere between $1-$200 per track depending where you go, but, I’m sure you’re more interested in where to get it for free:
