Every arrangement purchased through BMK Arrangements, whether a new custom chart, or a pre-arranged catalog chart, must follow the process for requesting a Permission to Arrangement License for adapting and modifying each copyrighted piece. These licenses are ensemble specific, and grant your ensemble permission to use the arrangement for a specified period of time.
Permission to Arrange
Permission to Arrange Licensing typically costs between $150 and $300 per song, but sometimes these fees can be even higher. If you combine more than one song into a medley, every song within that medley needs to be licensed together as a medley—increasing the price of the license drastically. The price of a license is determined solely by the copyright owner(s)—BMK Arrangements, LLC has no control over these fees—and all licensing costs are paid directly to the copyright owner(s). Licensing costs are not included in the quoted or invoiced arranging service rates charged by BMK Arrangements, LLC.
Obtaining Licensing Approval
Tresóna Multimedia can do all the work for you if you use their Licensing Exchange, we would be happy to put the License requests in for you and link them to your account. Tresóna will notify you when the license has been approved, you then pay them directly for the license and once that’s completed we can upload the arrangement into their system for you to download. This process can take a few months, so it is important to plan ahead and allow time for approvals to be completed in the system, and to have a backup plan should any song choices be denied.
In some instances, Custom Arrangement Licenses can be obtained by contacting the publisher or copyright owner and paying them directly. There can be a lot of research and legwork involved in this, because of that, BMK Arrangements is unable to complete this for you, but you’re more than welcome to do it yourself. We just need to see proof of completion of and payment for a license before we can begin working on your arrangement or finish processing a pending order for a pre-arranged Catalog Arrangement.
Please note that all pre-arranged Catalog Arrangements are NOT published arrangements and still require the proper request for ‘Permission to Arrange’ to be obtained from the copyright owner. You may utilize the checkout feature on our site to select arrangements you are interested in, and your order will be ‘on hold’ until a notification is received that the licensing and payment method has been approved.
We have compiled a list of Quick Approval Catalog Arrangements that are pre-approved at this time through Tresóna. These Licenses are approved right away, and these arrangements are can be made available as quickly as payment can be sent and received by Tresóna. We will do our best to keep this listing accurate, however titles available in this list are subject to change without notice as Tresóna’s pre-approved titles may change, please re-verify directly with them at the time of selecting an arrangement.
