If you use music that is protected by copyright in your business, Commonwealth legislation requires that you obtain permission (a licence) from the creators of that music. Simply crediting the creators is not enough.  
The good news for leaders of community music groups is that you may be able to access an affordable licence (<$300) that covers you for your work. 

Although no two teachers are alike, Covid has forced a lot of us to abandon our face-to-face classes and work in new ways from new platforms. This PD session will highlight what you can or can't legally do without obtaining permission from the copyright owner and address these topics:
  • making copies of music from paid or free sources
  • downloading free resources from the internet
  • performing live for free and/or for a fee
  • making audio recordings of music for practice, rehearsals and performances
  • using original sound recordings in rehearsals and performances
  • making your own arrangements 
  • running online 1:1 or groups lessons (e.g. Zoom)
  • presenting copyrighted material at PD sessions
  • live streaming sessions via Facebook/Instagram/Youtube
  • posting online a multi-screen video of your group playing a cover of a song you have arranged
  • making video recordings for practice and rehearsals
  • sharing "on-demand" video recordings online for a fee (e.g. via Patreon)
  • (for starters 😁)
The session is primarily targeted at leaders of Community Music Groups and will not be covering copyright issues for those working in schools, universities and colleges. 
It will be attended by a Licencing Representative from One Music Australia to help answer any questions.

2020 Online PD MayOVERVIEW

At the request of members, and as a follow-on from our Online PD last month, we're delighted to announce the first in a series of online "knowledge sharing" events.

How can we best use Zoom with groups of ukulele players? What can we do to ensure that it's the richest possible experience for participants and to keep our groups and students connected while we're still unable to gather in the ways and places we did before.

This session's guest presenters are Mark Jackson and Jane Jelbart from "The Sum of the Parts" in Newcastle, whose 9 Ukestras and 2 Choirs have undergone a massive evolution. They'll share their thoughts on running engaging and sustainable online sessions, and how they have used "breakout rooms" to enhance the user experience, not just in their "Zookestras" but in online teahing such as their improvisation courses.

After their presentation we will then open to the floor for you to ask and answer questions and to share your own experiences of this new medium.

NOTE: This session will NOT cover technical aspects such as sound and recording equipment, lighting, latency issues - these were covered in our previous PD Day. The video has been archived in the member's facebook group dated April 26.

 

FROM MARK & JANE: Zoom Ukulele Groups - Oh The Humanity!

We've been running Zookestras in Newcastle since mid March, and have now delivered over 70 online sessions.

Behind everything we do as ukulele teachers and leaders is our sense of community, and our responsibility to maintain that through making music together. Online teaching resources such as Zoom and Facebook can serve that purpose. In the previous AUTLA session Stu and Craig introduced us to the technology, however we want to look at the human elements that we have to grapple with. What new opportunities and challenges does online teaching present? We are still curators, we still care, and most importantly, we are still able to observe and respond to our community. So how do we best use the technology to serve these purposes, and how do we adapt?

'Cause we ain't comin' out of this non-singing-in-a-room-together period any time soon.

Join us for a zoomchinwag at AUTLA.
