Submitting a Music Performance
submit a video, you should be aware of following guidelines. With every
video you must include a description, music title, general information
about the music, your credentials, the credentials of musicians (if
ensemble, orchestra, etc). We will then add this information to the
page where your video will appear. It is not up to Piano TV to
represent you, it is your responsibility to represent yourself! You can
send this information in a text file along with you video when you
upload it or mail it to us on a DVD or on a separate disk to the
following address. Do not write it out on a sheet of paper!
Uploading a video
To upload your
video to us, you will need to use our File Sharing Service on Box.net.
You can access our sharing space after you sign up as a subscriber to
our free service through a simple double opt in procedure. The opt in
will require your name, email address, a brief statement of what kind
of presentation you will be submitting. After you opt in, you will
receive an email from Piano TV that gives you an access code that will
enable you to use our file sharing space.
Size and format of video
Your video cannot
exceed 1000 mb. We would
prefer your video to be in a wmv, avi, mpeg or flv format.
If it is in some other
format, we will attempt
to work with it by
converting it into flash
format. Flash is our
video format of choice
at Piano TV and we
encourage all our users
to stay current by
uploading the latest
Flash Player version
available on the
Adhering to these and
the following guidelines and parameters will ensure that your video will be posted
Quality of content
We do not
accept music that is "noise" or some kind of pointless prank or a gag.
We prefer music that primarily is piano or piano ensemble based but we
also accept non piano music ensembles.
You may submit
what amounts to be a commercial or promotional video of your music so
long as it contains content of interest that entertains and educates
the viewer. For instance, if this is your video; “Hello,
I’m Jane Smith. I am a great musician! Use me!” we will not
accept your video. Whereas if you actually perform and convey to the
viewer something unique and interesting about your music, then we will
post your video.
