Several of you have asked about the Media Release Form that I use in my studio. I just wrote it up based on what seemed necessary for my situation, so it would be best to get legal counsel as you develop a form that meets your studio needs. Here’s what I came up with, though:
The wording is: “I, _______, hereby grant permission for my child, __________, born on ____________, to have his/her photo used by Natalie’s Piano Studio in promotional materials, downloadable products, website content, and blog posts.”
Parent Signature _________________________ Date ______________
This is something that I include now as part of my interview process with new students and their parents. I usually have a clipboard sitting on the chair, along with the Parent Questionnaire, the Media Release Form, a business card, and a pen.
