Music for my project

Here is some music that I would like to have in the project.

 

Good for interview scenes.

I was thinking about this for the Introduction.

Using for the scening around training, around 40 seconds in.

I was thinking about using this when the whole class is training.  Mostly the drumming in the beginning.
