How and where to source music

This guidance is aimed at providing all the information you need to act as your group's librarian - from sourcing music to dealing with copyright.

Marketing resources for your group: Overview

Marketing is a broad term, and covers a huge range of activities. From researching potential audiences to composing social media posts, choosing your group's 'brand colours' to deciding on ticket prices: these activities all feed into how your group is seen; how potential members, audiences and supporters feel about it; and whether they decide to engage with you.

Performing Rights (PRS) FAQs

If you are putting on a public performance of music you may have to pay royalty fees. It is important that you understand what you obligations are and that you are paying any fees where necessary.
