Just want to correct something mentioned above about compulsory licenses for musical compositions. These apply only to sound recordings, not audio-visual performances. Note also that there's allot unsettled regarding video recordings of performances of copyrighted musical compositions. Generally speaking, you're only totally safe videoing your own performance of a musical composition if the composition is not under copyright. Otherwise you may need a license from the copyright owner. The unsettled part is whether permission of a performance-rights society is a sufficient alternative... like ASCAP or BMI. I only mention that because last year ASCAP worked out a license deal with Youtube covering its material. But its not clear if that deal will continue. Note also that in the motion picture industry, however, copyright owners generally only do direct licensing, called synchronization licensing, and do not license through performance-rights societies like ASCAP and BMI. Its looking like video licensing of free downloads of personal performances on the Internet may end up being treated differently, but its too soon to say for sure.

With regard to Hal Leonard... they rarely acquire the copyright to the musical compositions. But they always copyright their own work, however. Which is the musical notation. You shouldn't assume the copyright notice at the bottom of their notation applies to the composition. Suggest you look up the composition in the US Copyright Office online database to determine that. If the composition is not under copyright, you can play and record it all you want... you just can't reproduce Hal Leonard's notation and redistribute that.

Yes, and today is a busy day for me! They've scheduled 2 hours for me to practice on the theater stage piano and do the recordings (I'm planning to record 3 pieces if time permits).

My piano day will start earlier, however, when I will play 2 of my selections for a piano teacher at one of our well known music schools in Minneapolis. I got to know her a few years ago when her school began renting our theater for some of their community outreach programs. When she learned last year that I had decided to return to piano playing she offered to listen to me play when I felt ready to present something. She said that others had done it for her as she was developing her career. I called her two weeks ago to take her up on the offer.

Just last week the theater recording opportunity came about. The challenge, of course, is that both activities are happening on the same day! I feel confident that I'm up to it, however. The energy feels similar to my earlier years when I was a newspaper reporter having to juggle a lot of tasks while writing a breaking story on a tight publishing deadline. It's a little scary, yet it feels right!

I will let you know how my day goes.

Oh, stop fussing! Unless you're a politician or minister of religion, with busy-bodies poised to criticise your every action, NOBODY CARES about an amateur performance on YouTube. The worst that will happen is a request to remove it.

I don't think youtube will make a big deal about it, they may just send you a request to remove it, but for the most part, youtube soesn't care, as long as YOU GIVE CREDIT to the composer, and or publisher, and you aren't asking for money. smile Hope is works out, and you are able to post it with no problems!! smile
