Looking for ways to support your group X participants during this difficult time? We are excited to be the first to offer a full service solution for restoring that Live experience to your classes. The key word is “live”, as in Live – Stream – Now
As a Yes! Music customer, we are granting you access to the largest catalog of music ready to go for your live stream classes. We’ve curated a collection of Pre-made Playlists for the most popular class formats and made them conveniently available right here and FREE in this Live Stream Now category.
Why LiveStream Now vs my favorite popular music? Unfortunately, in order to use popular songs when leading your virtual classes, you would need to secure licensing from the original writers of each song you are playing in the background. Yes! Fitness Music does not own the rights to popular songs and therefore cannot grant permission even for use of our recorded versions in any video format.
There are a number of platforms you can use such as Facebook Live , Instagram, YouTube Live, Zoom, the Livestream app and more. Regardless of the platform, set a class time, invite your participants, and BE YOU! Look at the camera, bring your personality, talk to them, and lead them through your workouts as best you can. Add some meditation or deep breathing at the end and allow time to let everyone say “hi” and check in with each other.
Just a quick reminder. While we now permit you to save these to free non-commercial sites, we only permit this through December 31, 2020. At that time, they will need to be removed. These mixes are not to be used within ANY paid subscription services or posted on any monetized services like ad-supported YouTube channels without additional licenses and revenue sharing.
Good luck, we hope this can help. Give us a shout out when you broadcast tagging @yesfitnessmusic and yesfitnessmusic.com. And keep inspiring your community to stay healthy and strong!
