Composer Interviews – Earn Free Access


One of our subscribers pointed out that the composer interview section hasn’t been updated in a while. To be included you must have some experience in the field and you must be earning at least 5 figures annually as a production music composer (we have enough interviews at 4 figures and under). The interviews will always be available free of charge (they will not require a subscription to access).

Those accepted will receive one month free access. If you have a lifetime membership you can donate the free month to a friend.
