Any online music resources that might not be blocked?
Something like last.fm or spotify (eg legal and streamable)?
I can see why the above are blocked but the music department are understandably frustrated that there is nowhere for students to go to listen to music for inspiration. Classical music is covered with subscriptions to sites, but for popular music there doesnt seem to be much outside Amazons measly samples.
Anyone know of somewhere thats possibly less well known?

Free Music, Listen to Music Free - although I would hazard a guess this will be blocked as well.

If students have access to iTunes on their computers you could set up a shared playlist on the network where the teachers can add the 'suitable' music required for their //creative// learning by importing CDs.

grooveshark is quite good, just don't let the have spotify, as the license specifies each user must have there own account, plus the school cannot make them accounts as they cannot let them have passwords, also it does not allow playing out through public play back

Typically, all links posted are blocked No surprise. Thanks though
Good idea! The music department all run on macs so iTunes is no problem. The obvious question I suppose is what about the legality (not from ripping the cd's, but from sharing it) or are there exceptions if they are being used for education?

this is a total guess but i would say that it is not illegal to share it once it has been ripped off the CD, due to the fact that you are not going to let anybody burn it onto another disk therefore breaking the copyright infrigement. if you are just sitting it on a server for each student to play into headphones its pretty much the same as having the teacher play it out loud from the disk to the whole class anyway.

In reality you probably need some kind of radio license to do this, what a joke!

Please keep links legal although I do suspect they will be blocked but we as a site cant really link to illegal sites.

One thing to remember is spotify etc may all be banned because they are only for personal use and are not allowed to be used in this way sadly. We have been looking for some options ourselves to get around the personal use limitation.

That may be your guess - but its not the law - technically its an infringement as soon as you rip the CD - making it accessible on a network just compounds it.

Thought that might be the case. Well teachers do already rip cd's for their own use (discouraged, but hard to stop when the macs need itunes) but possibly not worth totally flouting the law by sharing it..

This is a large list of online radio stations rather than tracks, but isn't filtered by our network
You can build playlists on here, or just listen to single tracks. Also not filtered by our system.
