In our role as a commercial operator, the MPA provides a range of detailed guidelines to partners and music users – with the aim of making licensing as straightforward and frictionless as possible.
Agreed between composers, music publishers and users of printed music - this recognises the balance between the needs of musicians & students to have access to music, and for composers and publishers to be properly compensated when their works are copied.
These Guidelines for Amateur Music Hire are designed to help those using materials held by music publishers’ hire libraries for non-professional rehearsal or performance.
This document provides detailed support and guidance relating to disputes over relinquishments.
These Guidelines are designed to support the 1978 agreement between the MPA and the BBC relating to the hire of music from publisher for BBC programming.
These Guidelines are intended as a contribution towards achieving an efficient service by publishers to major professional orchestras and good communication between all concerned with hiring music material.
