Each purchaser receives a copyright license that allows for unlimited copying for orchestras and performances in which the purchaser is directly involved.
Except for longer songs, individual instrumental parts (e.g. Violin 1, Violin 2) are not provided. Instead, children read from the score – this introduces young musicians to the concept of score reading, and allows for greater flexibility in rehearsals, where for example, the whole orchestra may be invited to play the Cello or Violin 1 part before learning their own parts.
