Music

Finding music to use in Worship and Media can be a difficult and time consuming task. Here are several websites broken down into categories that will help to save you time and money when looking for that perfect track to use in your next project or worship service.

 

Backing Tracks are musical underscores that are used for Promo Videos, Sermon Bumpers, Highlight Videos, or Announcements. These sites sell royalty free tracks to use in any project. You can search for music based on style, composer, genre, instrumentation and other factors.

Sometimes it is necessary to purchase a premium track from the above websites, but most of the time you can find a quality Backing Track that will work just fine for your upcoming project for FREE! Here are several sites that give away tracks to use. Most of them place their tracks under a Creative Commons License which means you can use them, just give the original author credit.

 

Who doesn’t love FREE Christian Music? Here are several sites that give away free music – all you have to do is subscribe (usually) to their newsletter. Some of these sites give a free track or two away each week. Some just have a large library of music that you can search for and download. Either way, if you’re looking for some new music to listen to or use in your Worship or Media, check here before you buy cause you might be able to find it for free.

 

Using Sound Effects is a good way to add an extra punch to your video project. Maybe you just need some fun sounds for a retreat or youth event. Check out these sites that offer FREE Sound Effects to use in your Church or ministry. These sites have good search functions so you can find what you’re looking for in a short amount of time. Double check the Licensing request when you download – attribution is required for use of some files.

 

Remember going to the local Christian Bookstore and listening to Performance Tapes for hours to pick out that song you had to sing on Sunday? We’ve come a long way. Now for almost any song you can think of, you can download the performance track (some for $0.99) and burn it to a CD in just a few minutes. Before you pay $15 or even $20 for a CD Track, be sure to check these sites first, you can probably find what you’re looking for – for a lot less.
