Frequently Asked Questions
Can our church embed Emu videos into their online service during the Covid-19 lockdown?
We're keen to equip the church to sing the word of Christ together despite social distancing measures across the globe. With that in mind, we're happy for you to embed our videos, and have been making song leading videos for that specific purpose, which you can download for free (or donating any amount that you choose). Please ensure that the appropriate copyright information (song title, composer/s, Emu Music, copyright date, and CCLI No.) is shown at some point in the video. We also recommend tagging the video with this information within its metadata to help make the song identifiable. A link to our YouTube channel in the video description would also be greatly appreciated.
Can our church livestream your songs during the Covid-19 lockdown?
A number of social media platforms such as YouTube/Instagram/Facebook already allow you to livestream songs by Emu song writers. (Click here for more info). If performing our songs on these platforms, please ensure that the appropriate copyright information (song title, composer/s, Emu Music, copyright date, and CCLI No.) is shown at some point in the livestream. We also recommend tagging the video with this information within its metadata to help make the music identifiable.
We would also recommend CCLI's Streaming License which gives cover for a broad range of platforms and the ability to project lyrics etc. The scope of what this licence covers varies from country to country so please read the fine print!
In most cases, social media platforms and CCLI will not allow the re-streaming of licensed songs. (This is essentially posting a cover of a song which requires the song owner's permission via a mechanical licence.) For the current time, Emu (on behalf of its composers) is allowing you to use and keep our songs available on post live-streamed and pre-recorded services. However, please note that we have no control over YouTube (for example) deciding to remove a song you post.
Can you tell me more about copyright?
Yes! Please visit our copyright page for more information.
I can't find the mp3 or sheet music for a particular song in your song index.
If the song you're looking for is more than 10 years old, then it may not be available. We are still working on updating our back catalogue.
What format is your sheet music?
The sheet music .pdf file for our congregational songs includes full piano score, lead sheet (melody line + chords) and chord chart. The sheet music for our youth and kids albums includes lead sheet and chord chart.
Can I get your sheet music in a different key?
All our sheet music is sold in congregation-friendly keys, but we understand that sometimes your church will need it lower or higher. We are working on a system that will allow for transpositions, but at the moment this service is not available. You are welcome to transcribe your own charts, but please include the original copyright information.
How do I join the Emu team?
Use the contact form below to tell us about yourself: your church, instruments, experience, and any previous involvement/attendance at Emu events.
I'm a songwriter. Can I send you my songs?
- Please choose just one song to send.
- Your song needs to have been played to some trusted friends/family and your church leader for feedback OR your song needs to have been sung at your church/ministry.
- Please record the song to a decent quality, with a clear vocal melody and piano or guitar accompaniment. Please follow steps 1 and 2 for lyric-only submissions.
Then send it to firstname.lastname@example.org with a chord chart!
Due to the number of submissions, we can't always give feedback.
How do I organise an Emu event at my church?
Please use the contact form for your inquiry, including details about your church and suggested dates.
Can I get a refund on a purchase?
We do not offer refunds for digital purchases because they cannot be returned. CD and book purchases can be refunded if returned within 14 days in its original condition (return postage will be at your own expense).
