Many meditation teachers wonder whether it is illegal for them to play music CD’s they have purchased in their classes. In Australia, and most other countries too, the answer to this question is yes! Unless you have a public performance licence. You can, however, play music directly off the Internet (streaming), provided you don’t copy it and then play it. What this means is that you would do well to either run your classes where Internet is available or get yourself a mobile Internet (USB). Then you can go to sites like Youtube and play the music directly from the website.
To avoid having adverts pop up in the middle of your Meditation class on Youtube, you can join for around $12 a month and be advert free.
It is always advisable to have listened to the whole album first to make sure it will suit your purpose all the way through and to know how long it will play for.
