There is a thing, that 80% of composers that are trying to get their music into Music Libraries overlook.
If you’re trying to get Production Music placed into Music Libraries yourself and you overlook this one aspect, most Music Libraries are unlikely to take your tracks. Even if they do accept them, you’re usually going to get much less in terms of placement from their clients than if you pay attention to it.
All is explained in the video below!
(If you haven’t yet signed up for the 3 free “Library Music That Sells” lessons, you can find the link referred to at the end of this video by clicking the “Courses” menu option at the top of this page. Alternatively, watch the video native on YouTube and use the link there.)
There’s no excuse for not doing this homework, with YouTube, TuneFind, BDSRadio and others at your fingertips. Or the shows themselves. Or the TAXI reference listings. Good reminder, Michael.
Absolutely Robert! And great references there for checking out music for Film and TV – good shout!
Michael two obvious mistakes I was making before I took your coarse was not listening to any examples outside of the brief This was narrowing down my understanding and focus of the Genre they were looking for “Being on Target” And the second was over writing I still have a problem with people talking over my music lol- Thanks to the coarse what may seem so obvious I needed to hear-
Great points. Definitely worth listening to some music outside of each brief as well as reference tracks. Plus, great that you’re even considering voiceover application – lots of folks don’t!
Fantastic! very helpful
So many great and helpful hints here, Michael.
Great advice. Very useful. Thanks.
