Studio licensing

To support our teachers, all the digital sheet music on this site can be studio-licensed. This allows you to share the music with your students. Please note that the studio license only applies to digital copies, and each physical book is intended for use by one student.

Supersonics Piano studio licensing

Studio licensing allows teachers to use digitally-delivered materials with all of their students. You are permitted to use the purchased digital materials with any number of your own students as an individual teacher. However, this license cannot be shared with other teachers in the same or different studios.

  1. When you purchase digital sheet music, it is studio-licensed for life.
  2. Any pieces or books that you print while being a Supersonics Pro member are studio-licensed for the duration of your membership.

Studio-licensing FAQ

Yes, you can pass the cost of purchasing digital Supersonics materials onto your students, and it is suggested that you do so. Supersonics Piano pieces are considered valuable investments that will bring long-term benefits. There are a few ways you can approach this:

  1. Charge a set “materials fee”: You can charge each student a specific amount per month, term, or year to cover the cost of the Supersonics materials.

  2. Charge per piece/book printed: Another option is to charge your students for each individual piece or book that you print for them from the Supersonics materials.

Alternatively, you can include access to Supersonics Piano pieces as part of the overall lesson fee that you charge your students. Additionally, it’s worth noting that Supersonics Piano purchases are tax-deductible, so it’s a good idea to consult with your accountant to ensure you maximize the benefits.

When it comes to organizing your digital music, there are various simple and creative options available. You can choose the method that suits your preferences and needs:

  1. Glue the pieces into scrapbooks: This option allows for easy highlighting or annotating directly on the score. It’s a great choice if you enjoy adding personal touches to your music.
  2. Use a plastic display folder: This method is quick and convenient, as you can easily slide the printed pieces into plastic sleeves. It provides easy access and protection for your music.
  3. Use a 3-ring binder: Opting for a binder allows for efficient organization by using dividers or tabs to separate different pieces or categories. It provides a neat and organized way to store your music.
  4. Send the pieces to a print store for professional printing and comb-binding: If you prefer a polished and professional look, you can send the digital files to a print store. They will print and comb-bind the pieces for you, which can be a cost-effective solution.
  5. Get your own comb binder and bind the pieces yourself: If you have the time and prefer a DIY approach, purchasing a comb binder allows you to bind the printed pieces into books yourself. This method can be quite cost-effective.

Each piece includes a “print ready” PDF and full-color cover, making it easy and hassle-free to print. For attractive color covers, consider having them printed in small batches on glossy card stock at a print shop. This option is economical and enhances the overall presentation.

Choose the option that suits your style and budget while ensuring that your digital music remains organized, flexible, and visually appealing.

Absolutely! Your students can use the studio-licensed copies for exams, competitions, or concerts. Here’s how you can ensure compliance:

  1. Attach a copy of your invoice: Simply attach a copy of your invoice to the sheet music that needs to be submitted for the event. This serves as proof of your valid studio license.

  2. Bring your invoice to the event: If you’re required to bring the invoice to the event instead of attaching it to the sheet music, make sure to bring a printed copy of your invoice along. This way, you can demonstrate that you have the necessary licensing rights for the music being performed.

  3. Supersonics Pro members have the convenience of printing a stamped authorization letter to present to event organizers. This letter serves as official proof of your licensing rights and allows your students to use the studio-licensed copies for exams, competitions, or concerts without any concerns. Simply access the Pro member resources to generate and print the authorization letter as needed.

For added assurance, we can create a personalized “authorized copy” for your student upon request. If you need this service or any assistance related to legality and licensing, please don’t hesitate to contact us. We’re also more than happy to address any queries or concerns from event organizers regarding the legitimacy of the music used.

By following these guidelines, you can ensure that your students can confidently use studio-licensed copies for their exams, competitions, or concerts while complying with any requirements set by the event organizers.
