Listing Guide for the Amateur Music Network
Listings are the heart of how the Amateur Music Network connects our community. Musicians who want to join ensembles, take lessons or classes, or find music support resources can search for opportunities and vendors in their local area. Musicians who wish to connect with one another can find others who share their interests. Teachers, presenters, schools, and service providers can let the community know about their offerings.
Listings are created by Amateur Music Network subscribers in one of six categories: Ensembles, Classes, Teachers, Events, Services and Connect. The listing category determines what information is displayed in the listing.
Free users may create one Connect listing and may manage their profile. To create any other kind of listing, users must upgrade to a paid plan.
ALL LISTINGS specify Genre, and you may select up to three genres for your listing. We have attempted to provide large general categories that most music can fit in. We know your interests and styles are more specific, so please use the description field to make these distinctions clear. For example, if you specialize in Early Music, you might select the "Classical" genre and then describe your specialty in the description field. We did our best to be comprehensive and inclusive in our list of genres, but if you cannot find something that fits your music at least in a general way, please contact us and let us know.
ALL LISTINGS specify geographic Region. Please select your primary region.
ALL LISTINGS include a Description. There is a 2000-character limit for descriptions, but this is plenty of text for you to let people know about your offering. Only the first 500 characters will display on the “Browse Listings” view, so put the crucial information first (the detailed view will have your complete description). Your description text is searchable, so be sure to include keywords that will help people find you.
ALL LISTINGS have a listing Image. For Standard and Premium plans, you may add additional images to your listing. Image dimensions are 200x200, so choose an image that will display nicely in a square shape. If you prefer not to upload a picture, a generic image will be displayed on your listing.
ALL LISTINGS (except Connect) will link to Google Maps if you include an address in your listing. If you wish to keep your location private, do not include the address in your listing.
MANAGING YOUR LISTINGS
Depending on your plan, you may have as few as one or as many as ten listings at any one time. Once you reach your plan limit on the number of listings, you must either delete a listing or make it inactive (so it is not public), and then make it active when have room in your plan for another listing and you wish it to be seen by others. You may edit and delete your listings, and users on Engage or Inspire plans may clone listings to replicate them with adjusted information for the new listing.
