IF I HAVE MORE THAN ONE STUDENT, DO I HAVE TO PURCHASE A SUBSCRIPTION FOR EACH SCHOOL OR ORGANIZATION?
No. Your $25 annual subscription allows you to choose multiple organizations and ensembles.
CAN MY FAMILY SHARE ONE SUBSCRIPTION?
One per household. Immediate family members that live in the same house can share a subscription (spouses, students, and siblings.) Grandparents, aunts and uncles, and family friends are responsible for purchasing their own subscriptions.
WHAT IF SOMEONE UPLOADS A VIDEO I DON’T LIKE?
All videos are approved by the director of the ensemble or by the administrator of the organization before they are able to be viewed.
CAN I UPLOAD A VIDEO THAT CONTAINS A MASTER RECORDING?
Not at this time, as the use of a master recording requires an additional license. However, this is a feature we hope to add in the future.
ARE VIDEOS OF CHEER, DANCE AND WINTERGUARD PERFORMANCES ALLOWED TO BE POSTED ON THE SITE?
Not at this time. Any performance that involves the use of a master recording is currently prohibited.
WHO IS ABLE TO UPLOAD VIDEOS?
Professional videographers, production companies, organization channel administrators, and ensemble directors.
IS THERE AN APPROVAL PROCESS ONCE VIDEOS ARE UPLOADED?
Yes, all videos are approved by the director of the ensemble or by the administrator of the organization before they are able to be viewed.
ARE THERE LIMITS TO HOW MANY ENSEMBLES CAN BE ASSOCIATED WITH ONE ORGANIZATION?
No. We encourage schools and state music education associations to list all of their performing ensembles.
IF MY ORGANIZATION PURCHASES A CHANNEL, DO THE DIRECTORS OF ALL OF OUR ENSEMBLES HAVE FULL ADMINISTRATIVE RIGHTS?
No. Each organization has one dedicated administrator. However, each director associated with an ensemble in the organization is given a director's login at no additional cost. The director is then allowed to login and upload, edit, and approve all videos associated with his or her ensemble.
WHY ARE ORGANIZATIONS ASKED TO UPLOAD A PICTURE OR LOGO OF THEIR SCHOOL (OR STATE MUSIC EDUCATION ASSOCIATION) WHEN THEY REGISTER?
This is optional and certainly not required. Once you upload your picture or logo it appears at the top of your channel and provides a personalized touch for your subscribers. It is especially helpful for parents with more than one student in more than one organization.
WHAT ARE THE CHANNEL FEES, AND WHAT DO THEY COVER?
Annual channel fees are based on the type of organization:
- Public Middle/Elementary School: $500.00
- Private Middle/Elementary School: $500.00
- Public High School: $1000.00
- Private High School: $1000.00
- College/University: $2500.00
- Music Education Association: $1500.00
Organizations pay an annual channel fee for a channel on the network. Each organization is allowed one Administrator; however all of their ensemble directors are given free directors subscriptions which allow them to upload and approve the videos of their ensembles. An organization's annual channel fee covers all synchronization licensing fees for all of their ensembles. (This is a huge savings as these licenses typically range from $100 - $135 per song when applied for individually.)
