ASCAP Concert Music Primer

Are you a concert music composer or publisher? Have questions about licensing your concert venue? Here’s an overview of everything you need to know.

ASCAP’s always been a great resource for information for me, really great for helping to figure out the different parts of the business without a financial interest in me - trying to figure out what’s actually best for my music, or best for a direction I’m supposed to go.

— David Lang
