Dear Fellow Songwriter,
I have some questions for you:
·Would You Like To Earn More Money With Your Music By Licensing Your Songs For Use In TV and Film?
·Do You Have A Catalog Of Songs That YOU'RE NOT Earning Income From?
·Are You Tired Of Working Your Day Job While You Wait For That Elusive Record Deal That Might Never Come?
·Do You Think Your Music Is Good Enough To Compete In The Marketplace But Simply Aren't Sure Of How To Get It Out There?
·Are You Ready To Take Realistic Steps To Move Your Career Forward By Licensing Your Music While Making Money And Also Gaining More Exposure For Your Music At The Same Time?
If you answered "YES!" to any of these questions, then I have some important news for you...
Here’s The Bottom Line...
NOT making money from what you're passionate about sucks!
It leaves you feeling like you have no power in your life.
Over time it can become very discouraging and can rob you of the passion and determination you need to succeed in this VERY competitive business.
It can cause you to question whether or not you're on the right path.
It can lead many people to simply give up on their dreams, despite possessing the necessary talent that is needed to succeed.
On the other hand...
There are few things more rewarding than getting paid for what you love to do.
It feels great to get to wake up EVERY DAY and do what you love to do... and get paid for it.
It feels great to know that there is a NEED for your music and that you know HOW to get paid for the music you create.
Simply put, It just feels very rewarding to know that you're on the right track and to see tangible, measurable progress as you move towards your goals.

Licensing Your Music In TV and Films
My name is Aaron Davison. I've been writing songs for over fifteen years. I attended Berklee College of Music in the mid 1990's where I majored in Songwriting and studied with some of the world's most renowned Songwriting Professors, including both Pat Pattison and Jack Perricone. It was during my time at Berklee that I was first introduced to the concept of writing songs for film and television as a career. Although at the time I was mildly intrigued by the possibility of this career path, it wasn't until eight years later that I decided to seriously entertain the idea. At this point I had played in a variety of bands and had still yet to achieve my elusive goal of becoming a rock star. One day while surfing the Internet I came across an article about a Berklee Alum who made a living, in part, writing songs for Film and Television. This article inspired me for the first time to make a serious effort to pursue the craft of writing music for Film and Television. I realized that during all the time I had spent chasing my dreams of rock and roll stardom, I had passed over many more attainable goals that could have helped me make a living doing what I love to do most, playing music. I also realized that accomplishing these goals would probably actually get me closer to where I wanted to be. Within six months of reading that article I had signed my first licensing deal with a publisher and about four weeks after that I had my first song placed in a major network TV show.
For television shows, each time a song is used on air a performance royalty is generated. The royalty amount varies based on a number of factors including the length of the segment as well as how prominently it is used. Each performance generates both a writer's and publisher's royalty. If you work with a music publisher you both essentially get half of the entire royalty. If you are able to place the music without the aid of a publisher you retain both the writer's share and publisher's share of the performance royalty. Again, the amount varies, but to give you an example the first song I had placed was in a scene that lasted about :55 seconds on a daytime drama in 2002. The royalty check I received for the placement was over $800.00! This was in addition to a $500.00 licensing fee that I received from the television show that the song was used on. Not bad for less than a minute of airtime.
Why Most Musicians Don't Earn An Adequate Living From Their Music
Most musicians I know are shooting in the dark with their careers. They are waiting for some sort of elusive success that will probably NEVER come. I'm not saying this to scare you or to alarm you. I'm saying this because it's true. Unless you have an AMAZING manager or are VERY VERY lucky, the odds are simply stacked against you. There are MILLIONS of other bands and artists that are trying to break into the music business as well. But the good news is that MOST of the competition will not take the necessary steps to succeed. This is good news for YOU! You can set yourself apart by educating yourself and taking FULL RESPONSIBILITY for your own career.
What's the solution?
You HAVE to learn how to take matters into your own hands. Just writing a great song doesn't guarantee that you're going to make any money from it or that anyone will ever hear it!!
You can't sit around and wait for someone to discover you! It's NOT going to happen. Really, it's not. The odds about the same as winning the lottery. Have you ever won the lottery? Well I haven't either! However, the good news is YOU CAN succeed if you take FULL RESPONSIBILITY for your music career.
Getting Your Songs Placed In TV And Film - A 20 Billion Dollar A Year Business
Getting your songs placed in Television shows and films can be a wonderful source of income for musicians. Record sales have been declining for several years now but the licensing and publishing aspect of the music industry has never been stonger. The Music Licensing industry alone is a 20 BILLION dollar a year market.
These days there are endless opportunities to provide your music as background music for various mediums. From TV shows to movies to websites and video games, independent music is everywhere. The music industry, like all industries, is constantly changing and evolving. To survive, and eventually thrive, it's imperative that you stay abreast of the where the music industry is headed and stay on top of where the demand is for your music. Making a living as a musician can be an extremely challenging task, to say the least. I know it was for me for many years. But if you're driven enough and are smart about what you're doing, making a comfortable living is very attainable.
How To Get Your Music Into TV and Films... Introducing The A-Z Of Music Licensing
Based on my experience of working in the music licensing business for over six years, I have put together a one of a kind program called The A-Z Of Music Licensing that covers, in detail, how to get started in the business of music licensing. This program is the most comprehensive product available on the business of music licensing, period. It explains in detail everything you need to know to get started in the business of licensing your music. The program contains both an audio portion (ipod compatible) that explains how to license your music, an audio interview with a leading industry insider and also a directory of contact information for the music licensing industry that is accesible immediately as a PDF file. The whole program is available online immediately when you check out.
"It took me years to find ways to make music my living. It wasn’t until I found this program online called “The A to Z of Music Licensing”, that I realized I could make a living from my original music. And you can do the same thing. If you have good quality music, I strongly recommend licensing it for TV, Film, Video Games and/or Business Presentations. This program gave me and a couple of my friends the tools to license one of our songs in a film called “Living Will” starring Ryan Dunn."

Just wanted to say thanks for your awesome program! It's great to know that there is information like yours available. I'm excited to get started!
I just ordered and downloaded your audio files ...
I think this is some wonderful information and will soon be using it.
I will keep in-touch with possible questions and updates on how well this works out for me.
Because of your course, I am currently re-mastering some songs I have done to make them sound better, copyrighting them and submitting them to the
contacts you have provided.
Thanks for a great course ....
I sent you an email a few weeks ago asking about your thoughts of pitching my music ( Mostly Blues & Jazz ....But also Guitar intrumentals, folk, French cabaret, Christmas and some Traditinal Country )and actually making any money at the library thing. Your reply was that these genres were not yours and you couldn't really comment on that domain .
I apreciated your honest answer and went ahead and bought your repertoire of libraries, publishers etc...
Well here's the lowdown after 3 weeks of hard work sending emails and submitting songs online and via CD by mail.
I've signed deals for 27 songs and there's another 60 or so that are being screened as I write this email....
I thought I would pass on to you the fact that I also got my whole catalogue (47 tunes) signed to one of the libraries in your directory.
Thanks for your help!
Great, inspiring information….exactly what I was looking for in regards to publishing and the like. Much appreciated!!
