Music Creators


Composer, lyricist, adapter, music arranger, … At the SGAE, we combine all our efforts to reach together where you alone cannot reach.

Join up because, in addition, we can support you with training programmes, cultural promotion and assistance in cases of need.

Register your Musical Works

For us to be able to pay you the copyright you are entitled to for the use of your musical works (musical compositions with or without lyrics, jokes, sketches, staged poetry, songs created expressly for audio-visual works, etc.) it is essential for you to register them with our Society.


Notify us of your conce​rts

You already know how important it is to notify us of all live concerts you may be aware of where your musical works have been performed so that, afterwards, along with our own actions, we can be sure to reflect them all on your copyright settlements.

To do so, all you have to do is fill in the appropriate form provided below for the preparation of the Variety Show and/or Symphonic Programme Sheet and, once it is complete, print it out, sign it and send it to us by mail to the Territorial Office of the SGAE corresponding to the location of the premises where the concert was held or else to any of our Offices.


If more than 30 of your works have been performed, please use the Appendix 1 given in the "Variety Show Programme Sheet Preparation Form" PDF file. If not, it is not necessary to print the third page.

Completing these forms by hand will make them unacceptable as "Programme Sheets".

This is how we share-out your rights

This programme of incentives complements the Foundation’s programme to support musical creative activities among the members of the SGAE, in this case for the authors of symphonic works – understood to be the authors of orchestral works, chamber music and other concert formats.
