Listen to the last episode:

How to increase your chances of getting picked up by music libraries and publishers is a question that seems to come up on a daily basis. While there are no strict rules on how to network with potential colleagues and clients there are some absolute 'no no's' and some things that go a long way to give you a big old thumbs up.

What it really boils down to is making sure you know who you're contacting. Address them personally and avoid generic emails. Plan your submissions carefully and make sure your catering to the needs of a specific library you want to work with.

You can ask yourself these questions:

What do you see this library regularly releasing?
Do you have knowledge on the types of composers they sign up?
How many albums do they release a year and in what genres do they release?
Can you offer them something unique?

In this episode and I share with you everything I know about getting your foot in the door with the right libraries. Libraries that don't just accept your tracks but get your tracks placed on Trailers, TV and Advertising and get you paid!

If you have any questions, composers you’d like me to interview or would like to hear me cover something on the podcast please feel free to email me: info@protégé.school
