Royalty-Free Music, SFX Sites and Online Video Editors for Music Video Creation


Here is a helpful list of royalty-free music and sound effect sites for projects, thanks to Larry Ferlazzo's blog.  The post includes a lot of additional comments from his followers (59 more comments) which are also helpful.  

Richard Byrne also offers this list of Royalty Free Music for Education and check out the related items at the bottom of the page.

As far as online video editors, this is a good list to choose from - other than having to install Windows Movie Maker. Any one of these 10 should work to help you put together a quick video.  PowToon is more for animation and YouTube has a lot of music built right in. WeVideo (no longer free) and Magisto are both recommended, but don't forget one of my all-time favorites, Animoto.  Do a search for "Animoto for Education" so you can create longer videos with your class during your teacher trial.  

If your class is using an iPad, a recommended app is Video Star, which allows you to create music videos very quickly with special effects and a wide assortment of songs.  Video Star is free, while iMovie is only free on a newer-model iPad.  For an older iPad, such as an iPad 2, iMovie is still a pay app.
