    Usually you need to let the publisher know that you want to terminate the contract before the end of the term. As for going non-exclusive to exclusive, they most likely won’t do that. Exclusive libraries want tracks that have never been published.

    Hey Wall_E! When I submit to these types of libraries I like to do some research on a specific label and see if they have their own site with contact info. It is definitely a better strategy than submitting to the generic emails. See if you can find the label manager. Hope this helps.

    I highly doubt that would happen. They wouldn’t be able to enforce exclusivity if the music was already in other libraries. Not to mention the people who don’t get the memo and leave their stuff in other libraries. It would create a huge mess for the library!

    Good topic! I know some fellow composers who have their own programs where they teach these skills to aspiring sync composers. I don’t personally do it, but these programs are popping up all the time. You could go the route where you teach the basics of the business for money. A lot of fellow musicians ask me questions too, and I’m happy to help. I don’t give them specific libraries usually, but I will tell them how they can submit to libraries. A lot of newbs run when they realize how much work it is and how patient you need to be!

    I don’t think there is a library specifically for that. Christmas music is in demand every year from basically every library though!

    The libraries that communicate with me regularly are the ones I work with the most. It is an important factor in my opinion.

    Hey guys, I was hoping someone could weigh in as to whether I should switch to BMI or not. I’ve been doing this for about 3 years now. My placements are probably 2/3 international, 1/3 US. From what I read, some say ASCAP is better for international royalties. I have about 1,100 registered tracks on ASCAP (some re-titles and alt versions). I have until the end of March to decide whether I want to switch. Any help is appreciated!

    I use Wix, you can easily embed Soundcloud players and videos.
