Faculty Resources

Below are helpful resources for both full time and adjunct faculty in the Dewberry School of Music. All music faculty should use GMU email addresses and regularly check their mailbox in the Dewberry Family School of Music, Performing Arts Building 417. We are open 8:30 AM – 5:00 PM Monday-Friday.


Copyright Check

Now that we are broadcasting performances on YouTube, it would be a good idea to do a copyright check as you build your program.  The Reva and Sid Dewberry Family School of Music has licenses with ASCAP, BMI, SESAC, and Global Music Rights, and the step-by-step directions will guide you so you can confirm for yourself that we can legally broadcast your entire program.  Only pieces with 100% total share can be broadcast.

How To Do a Copyright Check

The Operations office will conduct the final copyright check two weeks before your broadcast date.

Program Templates

When printing your program, we recommend using Print Services who has better rates than off campus options and can be found online or in the HUB (703) 993-9083.  If you plan to use Print Services, it would be advisable to give them 3 business days prior to the performance to complete the job.  Jobs given less than 24 hours will incur additional charges.

For a booklet style program:  If your program is based on the “Ticketed Events in Harris or deLaski” or the “Faculty Artist Series” template, you have a booklet style program.  When creating your program, make sure the total number of pages your document is divisible by 4. For example, if you have 12 pages and need to add one more page, then you need to add 4 more pages to make a total of 16 pages.  If not, there will be several blank pages as part of your program.  When you go to Print Services’s website to print your program, select “Booklet” from the Print Services page and select 8.5 x 5.5 booklet.  If you have more than 4 pages in your program and you want your program to be stapled, choose a saddle stitch binding (at extra cost).  The Dewberry School of Music typically uses standard paper options (Inside Paper Stock & Cover Stock Options: 20 lb – white – standard) in black and white with 2 sided printing for front and back covers and no trim.  If there is time, a proof is a great idea so that you can see a copy of your program before it goes to final print, which avoids making many copies of a mistake.

For a single page style program:  If your program is based on the “Departmental” template or is an unfolded, one page program, choose Copies from the Print Services page.  Make as many copies as needed.
