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 and 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 Networks partner composers and 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 London's 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.
