Would you like a free original classical music ringtone for your phone? If you’re a Sharon Ruchman fan you may have downloaded one of her free classical music mp3 pieces. The current piece, by the way, is a ceremony wedding music mp3. We’ve had some requests for an original classical music ringtone, so we decided to investigate the possibilities of offering Sharon’s fans an original classical music ringtone or two for their iPhones or Androids.
So far we were able to create an iPhone ringtone for you.* Believe us, it wasn’t easy! We did quite a bit of research and found that a lot of people have struggled with downloading custom ringtones onto their iPhones. The problem isn’t with creating the custom ringtone, but with getting the ringtone onto the iPhone.
We still wanted to offer you Sharon’s music as a ringtone because, once we were able to create the ringtone AND get it onto our iPhones, the original classical music ringtone sounded amazing and beautiful. We are excited to share with you the joy of Sharon’s original classical music so that you can hear it whenever your phone rings, when you receive a text, or even as your alarm ringtone.
Next time we will try it with an Android phone, but for now, here is what we found helped us successfully download Sharon’s original classical music ringtone onto the iPhone.
