ASCAP's hundreds of thousands of songwriter, composer and music publisher members all have one thing in common: they are driven to create. ASCAP's YouTube content is intended to explore the art and craft of music in all of its facets -- from its creation and development to its use and enjoyment around the world. Any content we feature is intended to educate, highlight, support and celebrate our members and their music, and to help inspire and nurture other music creators in their own evolution as artists.
