When you learn this invaluable skill, it’s like printing money!
So many musicians, songwriters and music creators are missing the mark when it comes to creating a stable business.
GETTING YOUR MUSIC IN TV SHOWS, MOVIES, ADS, AND OTHER MEDIA IS A STABLE, SUSTAINING INCOME STREAM WHEN YOU GET THIS RIGHT!!!
If you keep sending your music to various music libraries, supes and music representatives, but you are not getting quality placements, there’s one main reason for this. Your music doesn’t have the polish or top quality sound. There is something not special enough about your songs. Either your production is less than great, or your mixes are not Pro-sounding. It’s as simple as that. Top quality music will get licensed and you will get paid well.
Music creators tell me often ” The best sounding music or hits have million-dollar production budgets!How can I compete with that?”
There are songs on the charts that do have big budget production, yes, however, you can get your songs in that ballpark. Yes you can! There are some guidelines to follow:
*Make sure you have a current groove or beat for your songs.
*Pick a great tempo.
*Write lyrics about universal themes.
*Use great sounds.
*If you have guitars, make sure they are perfectly in tune.
*Don’t clutter up your mixes.
*Use modern production techniques like side-chaining.
*Make sure the vocals are unique and amazing.
*Learn proper mixing techniques or have a Pro mix your tracks.
*Get production help from experts.
*When all these things are in place, get Pro mastering.
There is more to know, but these are some main pointers that will get you paid if you just get these things right, and this won’t cost a fortune.
