    I was wondering if you recommend thanking libraries for placements. For instance, I recently got a placement on a popular late night TV show. I was excited about it, and in thinking about building a relationship with my library, I wondered if I should e-mail them to say thanks. It seems like a no brainer, but the reason I decided to ask first is, I know my contacts there are very busy, and swamped lately. Got any advice? Thanks!

    I thanked one of my libs for a well paying placement… The owner wrote back with an update on more placements my music obtained which I could expect in the near future… Being polite is always nice I think.

    I wondered the same thing about thanking a library that I got placements through then I remembered my pops telling me,”You can’t go wrong when you have something good to say”
    so I did.

    I thank my library people a lot – if I see a nice lump sum or a group of placements or they tell me they are pitching my work I say thanks and keep up the great work and thank you for representing the music so well. I sometimes even thank them on behalf of any other composers who may forget or not even think to say thanks. I make a living from creating music and I am very grateful to the people who ensure my compositions are out there getting placed and generating income for myself and my family.

    i think its nice to thank you’re publishers if they are responsible for getting you some career milestone placements. i once sent them a thank you when i saw my music had been used along side John Williams in a cue sheet during the Olympics on NBC. they were delighted to hear such a win from one of their composers. they are people at the end of the day so they should be cheering you on as your representative library.

    Thank you all for the feedback! I will take your advice and make it a regular practice to say thanks for any significant placements. I didn’t hear back yet this time, but I know my library is busy and I think it is probably still a good thing to write a short thank you note.
