We all appreciate the integral part Music plays in any school activities. From fundraising events to concerts and public music festivals; from photocopying expensive sheet music to the use of music in student audio and video recordings, from presenting power point presentations to making music available on the schools digital content management system. The School’s Music Licence enables schools to do all these things and more.
In past years NZ schools have taken out two licences to get the full benefit of using music and recordings.
We are now offering one, combined, more comprehensive School's Music Licence, so you no longer need to take out two separate licences. This not only makes the licensing process easier for you, but will allow broader opportunities for your school and students to utilise music.
· music is performed in public or broadcast at your school or by your students
· CD’s, iPods etc are played outside the course of instruction i.e at school socials or dances
· students take part in music festivals
· sheet music is photocopied for a choir or orchestra
· DVDs or CDs are being made of a school
· music is communicated on the school intranet
If you answered yes to any of these questions, then your school does require a music licence.
The combined comprehensive licence is $1.40 per student with a 5% discount for NZSTA members +GST
Each year we survey 60 schools. The data collected together with other distribution information is used to distribute royalties collected from schools in New Zealand to the correct copyright holders.
