Default RULES CHANGE: Regarding sale of Lessons/Books/DVDs/Instructional Videos

The staff recently changed a rule affecting the Classifieds, memberships and sponsorships. In the past, the AGF prohibited the sale of lessons, books or DVDs without a sponsorship. This rule has been changed.

If you are an individual artist or band member and provide lessons, you may promote them here. The promotion or sale ad must be posted in Classifieds--Other, so A CHARTER MEMBERSHIP IS REQUIRED. If you would then like to customize your signature in order to advertise your lessons, you may include an active link to your Classified ad. You will still be able to link to your website to advertise your music.

We will also allow the sale of DVDs, books and instructional videos if they are indeed music-related. Same rules will apply... charter membership is required and you must place an ad in the Classifieds--Other section. Instructional workshops may be announced in either Events or Classifieds--Other.

So, a charter membership is required for an individual artist/performer offering lessons. An organization, music school or professional music teacher offering lessons still needs to sponsor. Rules relating to other businesses like website memberships or clubs, recording studios or music-related photography have not changed; they still require sponsorships. This rules change was intended to help the performing artist who sells lessons as a secondary source of income.

Please be patient with us as we work through a major rules change. PM me or any moderator if you have questions. We're all listed in bright red letters at the bottom right of any subforum. Charter memberships may be obtained HERE in the top block for $25 per year. And the Classifieds--Other section is HERE. As always, we thank our members and sponsors for their support. We wouldn't be here without you.
