Permission from the song owner is required before recording copyrighted songs for any purpose. The Rehearse License by CCLI covers you to create two types of recordings:
- To copy purchased commercial audio recordings and share them with the worship team or choir as long as the record label is listed as being covered. Don’t forget to report it!
- To make your own customized recordings to help your team learn the songs. For example, you may record your worship team practice so the members can prepare at home for the worship service. Or perhaps you would like to record yourself playing the song and share the copies with your team to help them learn new songs.
Each of these methods are intended to be temporary copies used for rehearsal.
