20+ Websites to Download Creative Commons Music For Free Editor’s note: For a newer, updated version of this post, check it out here. If you’ve wondered where many of those YouTube videos get their background music from, you’ve come to the right place. Music with Creative Commons licenses are music compositions written, produced and shared by people who do not charge anything when you use their music for your own use, commercially or non-commercially. Basically, they make the music and keep ownership and copyright of it and you get the permission to use it for your videos, film or small multimedia productions, as long as you credit the creator properly. There are many sites out there that house music with Creative Commons licenses, sites where you can download music for free (and legally). These sites make it very easy for you to use, all you have to do is pick an audio clip you like and save it as an MP3, and there you have it, your free music download.

The Best Music Websites For Learning English Check out my New York Times post for English Language Learners focuses on using music for language development and includes a student interactive, video, and teaching ideas. I use music a lot in my teaching of English Language Learners. I thought people might find it helpful to see which sites I believe to be the best out there to help teach English — Beginning, Intermediate, and Advanced — through music. Music is a familiar, fun, and engaging tool to use in learning a second language. This is latest of my “The Best…” series, also known as Websites Of The Year. You might also be interested in an interview I did about using music in the ESL/EFL classroom.

Sing-along Songs One of the most fun group participation activities for family and friends is to engage in sing-along songs. The essence of a sing-along song is that it has a simple enough melody and memorable lyrics for everyone to easily learn. Many of these popular songs have been around for over a century and are taught to children as part of their grade school music education. She'll Be Comin' Round the Mountain Not many songs over a century old are still as popular as "She'll Be Comin' Round the Mountain," which originated in the late nineteenth century by an unknown composer. What A Wonderful World The song "What A Wonderful World" was first popularized in 1967 by Louis Armstrong and in 1999 was inducted in the Grammy Hall of Fame. Louis Armstrong enjoyed one of the longest recoding careers of any singer in history. Don't Worry, Be Happy One of the biggest and more memorable hits of the 1980s was "Don't Worry, Be Happy," recorded by Bobby McFerrin.

Best Music to Learn English | EASY ENGLISH ARTICLES Here are my top 5 music artists that English students should listen to. They have been chosen because they have clear pronunciation and great vocabulary (by great I mean interesting and useful- none of this street ganksta talk or old-fashioned nonsense that people just don’t say in real life). 1) George Ezra George Ezra is a singer from Hertford England. Check out his song Listen to the Man on Youtube. 2) Bruno Mars Bruno Mars is an American singer who was born in Hawaii. Check out the songs: “Just the way you are” “The Lazy Song” and “Locked out of Heaven” on youtube. 3) Of Monsters and Men Of Monsters and Men is a pop-folk-indi band from Iceland. Have a look at their songs on youtube here. 4) Ed Sheeran Ed Sheeran is British singer-song writer who plays the guitar. I recommend the song Thinking Out Loud 5) Noah and the Whale Noah and the Whale are an indi-rock band from London. I recommend the album “Last Night on Earth”.
