Splitting MP3 file with FFMPEG

My Daughter would like to participate in school lipsync. And she have choose the song to go with the dance move. Unfortunately the song is too long, I need to make it between 2 – 2:30 minutes.

So I listen to the song and find the correct location where I can split it up, it is around 2:18 mark. After googling I found that it can be done using the ffmpeg program which I already had installed in my Hackintosh. So here is the command for those who are interested.

ffmpeg -i <originalfile.mp3> -c copy -t <time in seconds> <outputfile.mp3>
