Ask the Expert: How to I protect and register a song (and earn revenue for it’s use in church)?
Whilst many amateur songwriters have no intention on making money from their songs, for others CCLI revenue from use in church is an essential income stream. In this guest post, CCLI’s Rich Burrough describes how to register a song with them as well as advising on how to establish copyright.

Do you know these hymns?
We are in the process of recording a number of more traditional hymns and we’d like your input! We’ve listed the list of possible hymns on our Facebook Page. We are trying to find out which are well known in which countries across the world (this is actually quite data to come by as these titles are all in the public domain so not actually monitored by CCLI or any other administrative bodies).
Is this the worst carol rendition ever?
We’ve laid off the traditional Christmas clangers this year but couldn’t resist sharing this fabulously awkward seasonal performance.
Carol backing tracks
For those of you without a worship team that can pull off a full sounding set of carols with all those challenging chords, take a look at our MultiTracks. We’ve 22 Christmas songs and even a free new carol.
Benefits of singing
We come across plenty of articles espousing the benefits of singing but this one goes beyond the usual findings taking a different angle by researching the impact on men of being part in a regular singing group.
Two new Musicademy training days – all new content
We have two new training days for 2016. This first is a new style of day which we are called ‘Worship Intensive’. It features more in-depth, longer masterclasses for guitar, bass and keys players as well as worship leaders. You can find out more here.
The second is more along the lines of our usual training days but does feature plenty of new content as well as seminar streams for singers and tech teams. You can find out more here.
There are good Early Bird discounts available for both days but these end on 12 January so do let your worship teams know about these events now.
Thanks for reading and a very happy Christmas to you all.
