PMLL and CLA announce arrangement competition10:23, 14th August 2017
Printed Music Licensing Limited (PMLL) and the Copyright Licensing Agency (CLA) have launched a competition to promote the educational use of printed music.
Shake it up invites music teachers from across the UK to make the most of the Schools Printed Music Licence (SPML) by submitting a unique arrangement of published music for the chance to win up to £700 worth of music resources for their school.
The SPML was created to enable teachers to copy and reuse content from printed music, meaning they can make copies and flexible arrangements without the risk of copyright infringement.
Music teachers are invited to submit an arrangement made for a distinct school purpose, such as a timetabled music lesson or a rehearsal of the junior orchestra, as well as a short written account of why the arrangement has been put together and the importance of putting printed music in the hands of our young musicians.
Any music teacher engaged in supporting music education at a licensed school can enter, including peripatetic teachers and those based at a Music Education Hub or Local Music Service.
The Shake it up competition will launch on 1 September 2017 and will remain open for entries until 16 March 2018.
