Innovative Internet learning platforms for music schools to bridge the gap between your classroom and virtual learning
The Video Catalog Manager lets teachers offer music instruction DVDs and videos in a completely branded web site, and offer videos for use by other instructors as individual titles

Overview

Many music teachers have instructional, concert or other music related DVDs that they want to sell or rent over the Internet. Go Play Music provides a complete solution for selling or renting individual DVD titles. The digital Video Catalog service gives instructors the ability to create a catalog of videos and monetize them in a unique way.

The Video Catalog Manager allows for the creation of a custom catalog with integrated video streaming, security, and eCommerce shopping cart with support for all major credit cards. The system provides customers with a branded video player environment to play DVDs directly over the Internet to their web-enabled computer, entertainment system or mobile devices.

The system allows support for different business models including a one-time purchase where the user gets an unlimited access to a specific DVD title, rent of a title for specified length of time, or, when combining the Video Catalog Manager with the subscription service, allows selling of a monthly subscription to a collection of videos. All of the billing and access to video titles is handled through the GPM eCommerce platform.

Sell Other DVD Titles

As instructors build their catalogs, they can include other DVD titles and generate additional revenue. They can choose from GPM's extensive collection of licensed instructional and concert digital DVDs to build out and expand catalogs and earn money.

Sell Titles Through Other Sites

As teachers produce their own instructional or concert DVDs, GPM can provide access to these titles for music schools, on-line instructional web sites and other video catalog sites that use the Go Play Music platform. This expands the viewership for content, and hence the opportunity for revenue growth.

The Video Catalog Manager integrates a number of key features that help instructors succeed and relieves them from the bulk of web site development and maintenance. GPM understands that teachers make money by producing and selling instructional content for their students - not by trying to be eCommerce companies. Partner with The Go Play Music Network. GPM provides the technology and support needed to run a successful on-line music instruction video distribution business.

Go Play Music's Video Catalog Manager provides a full function video server/player for distribution of video lessons over the Internet, securely streamed to students all over the world. Videos can also be segmented into chapters with accompanying graphics and text. Include downloadable files for sheet music, lesson guides, audio play along files and even video. Since GPM streams instructors' content over the Internet, maintaining contact with students is easy and more frequent than in traditional education settings, which leads to generating more recurring sales.
