Where Can I Get a Music / Dance License to Live Stream My ONLINE Classes?

Currently there are 2 major organizations that regulate live streaming music licensing: Ascap and BMI. 

Typical license costs around $100 / Year.  Please contact Ascap and/or BMI for further information on how to obtain proper licensing to play music that accompanies your live stream classes.


Ascap With an annual ASCAP music license, you can play millions of songs from our 565,000 songwriter, composer, and music publisher members, however you want - including live music by a band or DJ, or recorded music played off a CD, iPod, online streaming service, or most other means. Your license fee goes straight back to our members, so they can keep making the music that your customers love.


BMI BMI offers the ability to license most businesses and organizations online. Simply choose your business type and click “Apply for a License”, then enter your Username & Password, which are provided for you on your correspondence from BMI or by calling a BMI representative. Once licensed, you can also pay your fee and manage your account online. If your business type does not yet have BMI online licensing capability, you can download a license from the site and return it to BMI at 10 Music Square East, Nashville, TN 37203 or call a BMI representative at (888) 689-5264 to license.
