Music Copyright

    Hello All,
    I've been putting together the results of many years experience as a primary music teacher, music tutor, club leader etc to try and create a resource that will hopefully be of use to non-specialists.
    Obviously, there are many songs/pieces that I use, including nursery rhymes and contemporary/classical music and was wondering what the position was with regard to copyright and if anyone else has experience of using copyrighted material in their own work(words and or music score) re cost etc.
    I am assuming that a suggestion to use a particular piece would be fine (good free publicity for the copyright owner), but that the use of lyrics/score/recording presents a nightmare of issues.
    Any thoughts or advice would be most welcome (apologies if this question is too broad...)
    Cheers,
    QFE
