Online music: FREE streaming music websites
Its no big secret here, my budget forces me to either recycle my music or to get creative with my approach to increasing my collection. And, believe it or not, I still have about 15 old 8 tracks, a couple of hundred cassettes and around 75 music cds. I kind of like to keep my music. I do manage to purchase some cds each year but those are the ones I want so that I can have something physically in my hands. Online free music streaming websites are where I find my music and where I store it.
Music streaming websites all offer free music and have premium services available. Some even offer more advanced services but I have found that the free music service is more than sufficient for my needs. Some are more easy to use, but that may be just because they are my usual go-to sites. As with most things, the more familiar I am with something the more often I turn to it.
HerbertSkillz Beats from Cheshire, United Kingdom has a great track out, soft Acoustic Guitar & Piano relaxing instrumental.
Pandora has a great selection of genres, truly something for everyone. Playlist are called stations and it is fairly simple to navigate. With the free service, of course you have ads. Two upgrades are available,

Relaxation and Meditation Music
Relaxation and Meditation Music While not a free streaming site, Relaxation and Meditation Music does offer some of the more interesting and little known online music free for all to enjoy. (Nothing like a little shameless self-promotion!)
Serenity Health & Home Decor features some of the best home decor I have seen. I think the indoor table-top fireplaces are fantastic! A warm inviting fireplace that fits in small places. These indoor tabletop products are gel-fueled personal hubs of warmth that won’t produce smoke and soot. The eco-friendly units are odorless, too. The modern design of a tabletop fireplace creates a beautiful look for your home, vacation getaway or apartment.
I tend to use YouTube quite a bit, especially for music to share here at my blog. The biggest downside that I have found is the sheer size and the volume of music and other videos. Sometimes, the struggle to remain focused on finding the right music is lost to other interests.
SoundCloud is my favorite for finding music that is new or that just has not got the recognition it deserves. A lot of great artists have made their music available under the Creative Commons licensing. I use the other streaming services when I am doing research, studying or just hanging out. I like being able to select a time frame or particular type of music and just hitting play.
I have no idea how many free streaming music websites there are, I do know that I have only touched the tip of the iceberg with these. Where do you get your online music, free or premium services?
