GDPR/Data protection guidance on using the online mode.
If using the online mode, all videos will have to be manually administered by a member of the online conductor team. If this is an issue, please use the standalone mode, which is included free in the app. If using the standalone version, or the user choses not to upload their video, then all of the files are saved locally only, and another service will have to be used to send them to the video editors.
If you are directing an ensemble of minors (those under the age of 18), please ensure that appropriate parental permissions are granted as their video recording, by its very nature, will reveal their faces.
Please advise your performers to make sure that there aren't any pictures of other people in the background also.

Our legal team believes that the DCMA (Digital Copyright Millennium Act) does not apply to using copyrighted music with the online mode of Online Conductor, so long as all arrangements have already cleared copyright procedures.
If you are anxious, please record a song which is out of copyright.
Please note that this app does not collate and edit the videos together, although at Online Conductor we can provide that service. The purpose of the app is to help make this easy!
Demo of 'Online Mode':
Seb Farrall, creator of Online Conductor stands in front of nearly 200 community choir singers per week - all who use these digital resources to further their own singing and achieve far greater than those who don't have the resource. Gone are the days where there are pianos in every home with people to play them! We are in the guide-track age, let's embrace it!
"I've been conducting choirs professionally for a number of years now, and the incredible learning curve that guide tracks enable is remarkable. Every time we start a new song I have to remind myself quite how much it will improve when the singers get the tracks going. I will never forget how some singers from Sing it Loud, one of my earliest choirs, insisted on keeping their rehearsal CDs in the car stereo well after our concert because they loved listening to them so much. When I'm producing my guide tracks, that's who I think about - the singers and their need to enjoy the music. 'Good enough' is just not good enough. It must be enjoyable and therefore of good quality!
Anyway - I've set up this website so that I can share my resources with other people in this new 'guide track' choir age. I hope you find something useful to you. If you don't, let me know how I can improve things!
