Why should I pay a subscription fee?

Musical Contexts now contains over 2000 resources and a subscription fee is needed to help with web hosting and bandwidth costs, as well as ensuring Musical Contexts remains an advertising-free site with no pop-up banners or third party adverts.  This subscription fee also goes towards covering the costs of obtaining copyright permissions for the use of songs, scores and audio extracts which have been used throughout the site. 

*What will I get for my subscription fee?

*The cost of a subscription covers unlimited access to all Key Stage 2/Primary, Key Stage 3/Secondary and GCSE Music Resources along with access to the Year 7 Baseline Assessment Resources, Music Cover Bank, “DOITNOW”, “Plenary” & 5 Minutes Reading Bank, and Getting Started - First Music Lesson Ideas.  Occasionally, there may be one-off Seasonal Classroom Resources Activity packs available for additional stand-alone individual purchase via the Musical Contexts shop , the cost of which (normally £10.00) covers copyright permissions to obtain and use materials within the packs. 

Will my subscription need “renewed” or be charged again?

Making it easier for all parties, once your subscription fee has been paid, this will not be re-billed or recharged again making it a one-time payment.

How do I receive my username and password once I have paid?

Once your subscription payment has been received and cleared, you will receive an email welcoming you to Musical Contexts containing your own unique username and password.  This may not necessarily be immediately after submitting payment but I will endeavor to action all subscriptions within 24 hours, if not sooner.

Can I change my username and password?

Unfortunately, due to the initial set up of the site, users are sadly unable to change their username and password given at the time of subscription.  This is a feature that may be changed in the future should the web hosting provider begin to offer this feature as part of their web hosting package.  I can only apologise for any inconvenience caused. 

How do I invoice my school/college?

Musical Contexts gives you the option to invoice your school/college to pay for the £85 subscription fee.  You will need to download the Invoice Request form (click on the link above) which can be completed and emailed back to Contexts will then invoice your school/college and is happy to use a Purchase Order system/number. 

Payment can be made via BACS or Cheque.  International Bank Transfers are also accepted for payments from abroad.  IBAN and BIC codes, together with full Bank Transfer Information will be provided with any international invoice requests. 

Once payment has been received, a unique username and password will be issued together with a payment receipt for your records.  You can, of course, use a school credit or debit card to purchase the subscription.  Simply click on the PayPal “Pay Now” icon above and follow the instructions.  Individuals paying via card through PayPal and wishing to claim back the expense of subscription from their school/college will automatically receive a payment receipt from PayPal, but an additional receipt from Musical Contexts can also be issued to aid the process.

Can I purchase an individual unit?

The eleven Primary/Key Stage 2 units can be purchased individually as ‘stand-alone units’. 

Also, the Year 7 Baseline Assessment Resources can be purchased individually as a ‘bundle’. 

Please visit the Musical Contexts Shop for further information.

Can I copy, share or distribute the resources once I’ve paid my subscription?

Please feel free to copy and use these resources for your own use, with your students and pupils and within your own school or college, but please use the resources responsibly and ethically, as irresponsible free sharing of paid resources to groups and forums is not only a breach of copyright, but will only sadly see the demise of sites such as this which rely on the support of teachers for their future development.
