Ready for Trial- Uploading Your Best Works
Date: January 22, 2012
It is time to start the process to help conductors find our best works. Please send in the info about up to three pieces you have written, that you think are performable and marketable and that you have all copyright permissions cleared. In reviewing the legal end of me uploading something for you I have decided it would be best if you do it yourself. It may seem like a difficult process but it is actually pretty simple once you have done it. Anyone who can use Sibelius or Finale can surely do this. Have a peek at what the final results will look like.
Please read the terms and conditions on the Editor's only page. Agree to the terms and conditions by uploading to the library. The terms and conditions will be updated. At that time you will need to email me an acceptance of the terms and conditions. http://choralnet.org/305256
Library: You will be working in the Library. Use your browser's back button after you are done looking. Click here to view the Library. This is just a storage space for your Sound Files and PDFs. No one but us will probably be looking at it.
Pages: You will then be entering your piece's info as a series of data separated by commas in what is called the Composition Showcase Page. Click here to see how others have entered their info. Use your browser's back button to return here.
Finished Product: Take a look at what I will do with the data and files you enter. Do not enter or edit anything here. It is just to show you the way the final project will look. Use your browser's back button to return here. Look at the sample SATB Page by clicking here.
Follow these step by step instructions:
DO NOT DELETE ANYTHING OTHERS HAVE UPLOADED.
Step 1. While offline, write up appropriate text and assemble the related files for your works in the following format seperated by commas:
Title of piece, Voicing*, Other Voicing Info separated by a space-not a comma**, Accompaniment***, Other Instrumentation information****, Difficulty (Very Easy,Easy,Medium,Medium Difficult, Difficult),Composer Last Name, Composer First Name and Middle Initial (optional), Cost (indicate per copy made by buyer, per copy made by composer, license to copy X many), Link directly to Purchasing Page (THIS IS NOT OPTIONAL! Link to page on your own website or publisher's site or give e-mail address),Notes or description-no commas!, Links-no commas,
if there is missing information such as no other voicing info, still put a comma with no space between such as ,,
Little Red Bird, SATB, Falsetto Boys Double Soprano, A Cappella,,medium, Senzig, Jack, $1.00 per copy you make from .pdf,http://bogusaddress.net/list/senzig,,,
Step 2. Log in to ChoralNet and reply to this post saying "I am ready to upload." Check back later to see if I did step 3 for you yet.
Step 3. I will make you an "Editor" This gives you the power to upload files and edit pages. I will reply to your comment "Go for it" or something like that to let you know you are an editor.
Step 4. Click on Library in our community.
Step 4A. Click on "New Library File"
Step 4B. Name your file by its title, no .mp3 or .pdf etc (Example: Little Red Bird)

Step 4D. Select the proper sound file from your computer hard drive and click "Choose" (on a Mac) PC ??

Step 4E. Click on "Submit" button. If you choose an unacceptable file type it will tell you.
Step 5. Click on the file name you uploaded on the Library page. It will open the file in a window.
Step 6. Open an additional window in your browser and go to ChoralNet. (On a Mac type command N then type choralnet.org in your browser, then go to our community)
