Policies and Procedures of IPP Music

Booking

We have already begun booking for the 2017-2018 season and dates are filling up quickly. We STRONGLY encourage you to book your mixes in advance as we will be limiting the number of mixes we take on this season. We have experienced unprecedented growth, and in order to provide you with the best possible service we need to plan accordingly. That being said, our deposit policy will be STRICTLY enforced this season. All mixes will require a 50% non-refundable deposit in order to be scheduled. Visit www.ippmusic.com and click on “Booking Request” to book dates for the 2017-2018 season. The digital booking request form will be the ONLY way to book mixes this season. Please fill out one booking request form per team. We will email you to confirm that we have received your booking request(s) and to confirm that the dates you have requested are available. If the mix dates that you have requested are not available, we will offer you our next availability.

When submitting a booking request please make sure to include the following: program name, specific team name(s)*, mascot, colors, coed or all girl, division and program zip code. This season we will only accept the IPP 8-count sheet which can be found by visiting our website ippmusic.com and clicking the “8-count & Info” menu item at the very top of the site. We will also accept full length videos (no separated clips) performed to our 8 count track which is also found under the “8-count & Info” menu item at the very top of the site. All video submissions must be submitted in .mov format.

Please note, if you are unable to submit your 8-count sheets and song selections 14 days prior to your mix date or you would like to change your mix date we will try our best to accommodate you. All mix date changes, missed dates and/or late submission of routine information (8-count sheets, songs, etc.) will incur a $100 rescheduling fee.
 
*Team name changes made subsequent to booking request form submission will be subject to a $200.00 penalty and/or recoupment of incidental damages incurred by IPP.
 
Only the Innovative Performance Productions 8-count sheet will be accepted this season. The IPP 8-count sheet can be found by visiting our website www.ippmusic.com and clicking the “8-count & Info” menu item. Please do NOT take pictures of your 8-count sheets. Often times they become difficult to read when printing a picture taken from a cell phone, leading to a delay in music production. If you choose to hand write your 8-count sheet please use either black or blue ink as pencil becomes hard to read when printed. You can attach your 8-count sheet to the booking request form or email 8count sheets to info@ippmusic.com if they are not ready at the time the booking request form is completed.
 
Please note, we ask for a minimum of 5 song selections per routine. All song selections must be available through our vendor www.extrememusic.com, no exceptions. It will be the client’s responsibility to choose songs.

All edits will require the submission of an updated 8-count sheet or a current video.

Adding or removing 8-counts, shortening routine sections, extending routine sections and etc. is considered to be a routine reconstruction.

We will provide you with a price estimate prior to completing any reconstructions. Rap edits will be priced per occasion unless we make a mistake. If we make an error then rap changes will be free.
