Audio Network, the free music download resource for schools has moved over to a new platform, making the downloading and managing of tracks simpler and more intuitive. This service has been paid for by NEN members and is FREE to all schools taking their broadband from E2BN via their local authority or directly from E2BN/Internet4schools.
The Audio Network, database includes:
- Ability to access the resource via your school network (if you are a NEN school)
- A very wide selection of professionally recorded music
- Improved interface and facilities
- Updated with 10,000 new audio files taking the total to 60,000
You and your pupils can use the online search to find and audition music on-site. Individual music tracks can then be downloaded to your computer, pre-cleared and ready for use in your classroom.
The NEN licence with Audio Network allows teachers and students to download any of the music files free of charge with the condition that the downloaded files must not be used for any commercial purposes.
All the music in the vast catalogue of tracks has been specially composed by Audio Network’s partner composers, performed by top musicians and recorded to exacting industry standards for media production. The music catalogue now spans music of many different styles, cultures and types, and instrumentation – just browsing through is an education in itself!
This licence is only ‘free’ to NEN connected schools. If you think you should be getting access but are receiving an error message, please contact your RBC directly.
