Music and Copyright.

I also want to remind people that in early movies, the music used was often NOT composed for them, but was very old, out-of-copyright classical music. Most music from before 1937 at this point will be out of copyright. Sadly, I don't know a place to look to confirm this.
You still need to create your own orchestration of it, but if a section of Beethoven would work, and you neighbor's band will play it for you, that's all good for your film.

Here's an example
That's written and created from scratch via Magix Music Maker. There's a whole plethora of this type of software out there and I'm pretty sure even some decent free ones. Mac users of course are familiar with Garageband. Another cool thing is if you were to do what you say, you can always copy the sheet music and skip the whole recording a band bit. So if you wanted that piece from Beethoven, just translate the sheet music into digital notes with digital instruments!

I'm finding on you tube many of my personal videos using classical and old 40s videos are being taken down.I would think if your using the piece and not for resale it would matter.

It has been Bodo's prodigious talent with musical production, though, which has made him a sought-after composer with themes for Star Trek: Intrepid, Odyssey, Grissom and The Voyages of the U.S.S. Angeles under his belt. You can sample most of his work on his music website HERE
In addition Bodo has written whimsical and wonderful choral and orchestral pieces as well as work for various Indie game and film projects, his latest being Farmageddon by Martin Lejeune, another Intrepid alumni.
