Contact Music For Income
This large course is presented by film and TV composer Michael Kruk, who has run a music library for more than 14 years. Its aim is to help composers create an income from library music. There are 9.5 hours of streamed content, which cover topics such as composition, arrangement and mixing, sample use, contract terms, tips for working with library companies, and time management, plus interviews with editors, music libraries, and composers, alongside real-world music examples.
There are three tiers, with optional extras that include additional lessons and interviews, software discounts, a one-on-one mentorship call and a one-year TAXI membership. Though the website layout is a little unclear, this is a well-presented and easy-to-follow course. It’s not cheap but there’s a lot of useful content here. If you’re looking to carve out a career in library music, this could be a worthwhile investment.
