technical.ly/dc covers School Music Deal(TM)

Wanted to thank Lalita Clozel for her taking the time to learn about our multiple layers of distribution of which the School Music Deal is King and Libraries are the Queens of each USAMusicCity community.

School choirs have something many indie artists would die for: an adoring fan base — namely, their star-struck parents.

Seeking to cash in on that enthusiasm, Rockville-based indie music distributor Altavoz has launched a new deal just for schools.

In exchange for a fee, the company will get students’ music performances certified on iTunes, Amazon and YouTube.

“You need to have a community, and the larger your community the more successful your music is going to be,” said Altavoz CEO Nelson Jacobsen.
