Did you know that PowerPoint supports quite a few music file extensions? It supports AIFF, AU, MP3, MIDI, .WAV and .WMA files. So don’t limit yourself when you hunt for exciting music themes or scores for your presentations. Here are some great music sources for PowerPoint presentations.
This is the source for PPT music you are looking for. Their royalty free music library provides production music tracks in mp3 format that you can pay and download. What we like about this site is that registered users have a Preview, Purchase and Download option. If you are a consultant, you can get your client to preview the music score, and pay for it only if your client likes it!
Classic Cat is actually a link farm. It links to over 1500 freely downloadable classical music scores on the internet. What we like about this site is that it is sorted really well, by composer and work. Once you choose a composer and work, you even have a choice of selecting by performing musician. To download, you will be directed to the actual page where the music is hosted.
Owned by Alan McKinney, this site offers royalty free music tracks. Choose from classical to kids, folk, soul, jazz and horror to name a few genres. However, only the classical music genre is comprehensive, and since this is a genre that is often selected for PowerPoint’s, Freesfx makes it to our list of best music sources.
The site has a huge selection of royalty-free music that is available free for not-for-profit users. The link here takes you directly to the paid corporate music page. Individual tracks are not available, so entire CD’s have to be downloaded. However, it is worth buying because these tracks are great for sales presentations, seminars, training modules, commercials and all things corporate!

The tracks are available as CD downloads, but there are great flash previews of each CD to help you listen to clips of every track on the CD. We loved their corporate-specific collections, and we suggest you check them out too. The price is on the higher side, but the company guarantees that the license you receive is truly royalty-free.
