There are three APRA AMCOS music licences that enable schools to legally perform and reproduce what they need to deliver their education programs:

1. APRA Performance Licence

2. AMCOS Print Music Licence

3. APRA AMCOS ARIA Music Recordings and Access (A/V) Licence.

Most schools will require all three licences to fully cover their musical activities. All government schools in Australia are covered by the three licences automatically through their state or territory Department. Catholic and independent schools can opt in to each licence through their peak governing body.

Note re: filming of school concerts - under our music licences with primary and secondary schools, the school is able to film the concert themselves and share with the school community. The school can also give permission to parents to film their child’s concert for private and domestic use. Please note this covers music copyright only, and you might need permission for other copyright materials captured in the recording (eg: choreography, artwork, costumes).

If you're not sure what activities are covered and what activities are not covered by the licence, read our Licence Info Guide.
