LGfL's online music database featuring over 50,000 individual audio files.

New features include:

  • Ability to access the resource via the USO login when "off-grid" (e.g. from home or another location)
  • Wider selection of music
  • Improved interface and facilities (e.g. folders to store your selections - all linked to your USO account profile)

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 LGfL 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

The Audio Network Schools Licence is an innovative partnership between industry and education bringing UK schools a vast catalogue of originally composed recorded music for use across the curriculum and for all ages.

Audio Network and the Education Network (NEN) have worked together since 2003 bringing quality recorded music for digital production and performance in schools throughout the UK. The vexed question of music copyright is made clear for schools to use in the digital age. Pupils and teachers are able to use the same materials as professional film makers and broadcasters.

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!

Warning! AudioNetwork is a professional resource for the media industry. LGfL is pleased to make available to teachers and students this high-quality, industry-standard product, but because it is a resource for adults some of the content might be seen as unsuitable for younger pupils.

Access to Learning Resources both in and away from school site is freely available with a TRUSTnet Core Service subscription.
