Project Description

Music Licensing - Class Project


In this class project I'd like you to take actions steps and start putting together your music portfolio. It doesn't have to be a ton of tracks. It could even just be three tracks. But build them up, then add tags and keywords like we explained in the course.

Then choose which path you want to go down, the stock library route, or contacting music libraries direct.

If you go the stock library route, choose a platform, upload your songs, and refine your keywords, descriptions, and tags. Then share your profile with us here. Would love to hear what you have put together.

If you want to go direct to the music libraries, I have included a document here with a large selection of potential libraries you can contact. Choose a genre/style you want to focus on, then find libraries that focus on those genre's and styles. Contact them, introduce yourself, and send them links to your music.

If you get lucky and get a deal, please also share your successes here. Would love to hear it.

All the best with the project, and hope you enjoyed this course.
