What are the results achieved so far through the implementation of the policy/measure?:
The participation of musicians and musical institutions, publishers, and portals of musical scores confirms the usefulness and the necessity of the Songbook Online initiative with free access. The initiative is supported by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to ensure that all Brazilian embassies and consulates can promote Brazilian music by making the project link available to students at music schools and conservatories around the world. The international interest in Brazilian music is notorious and it is a strategy of cultural affirmation and generation of copyright to make it possible to access your scores in all musical genres (popular, band, concert).
