We have listed our most common license requests below. If these requests do not fit your needs, send us an email at mmp@maestro.ws explaining the nature of your request.

  • Mechanical License Request (recordings)
  • Permission Request (reprints in worship aids, etc.)
  • Photocopy License
  • Synchronization License

Mechanical License Requests (recordings)
A mechanical license is required prior to reproducing recordings of any MorningStar Music Publishers copyrighted material onto CDs or cassette tapes. The fee is determined by multiplying the number of produced CDs or cassettes by the current statutory rate of $.091 per song. To request a license, send an email to mmp@maestro.ws including your organization's information, the title of the piece and the number of CDs you intend to produce.  A license will be sent to you with a bill for the appropriate usage fee. 

Permissions Requests (reprints)
Permission must be requested prior to reprinting Maestro's copyrighted material in a bulletin, program, worship folder, or individual song sheet. There is a flat fee based on frequency of use: One Time Use ($10), Seasonal/Yearly Use ($25), and Lifetime Use ($50) such as a permanent songbook. To request a license, send an email to mmp@maestro.ws including your organization's information, the title of the piece and the type of usage (listed above).  A license will be sent to you with a bill for the appropriate usage fee. 

Photocopy License
Maestro Music Press does not typically grant permission to photocopy. Normally, you would be encouraged to use our Print and Save feature to download and print a certain number of copies. However, in certain situations, such as an educational use, we will grant photocopy licenses which will precisely indicate a certain number of copies for a specific work. The license will also require that a unique copyright notice is placed on all copies, showing that permission was received from Maestro Music Press

If you feel that you need a photocopy license, please send an email to mmp@maestro.ws with the following information:

  • Title of publication
  • Catalogue Number
  • Name of Composer and/or Author
  • Details of specific use and purpose for photocopies

Synchronization License
A synchronization license is necessary if you plan to use Maestro's copyrighted material in conjunction with visual images, such as television, movies, videos, and DVDs.
Please send an email to mmp@maestro.ws with the following information:

  • Title of publication
  • Catalogue Number
  • Name of Composer and/or Author
  • Date of release and specific details of use


Performance License
Maestro Music Press uses ASCAP as our performing rights organization. They will administer performance licenses on our behalf. You may also email us with your request at mmp@maestro.ws.
