    Its about time

    I am a aspiring songwriter trying to sell my songs to make a living. I¿ve thought about getting a publisher but wondered if I could do it myself. For a while now I¿ve known the basics of what a music publisher is. He grants licenses to labels, agencies, and so on for songs to make a profit for both the writer and himself. But how exactly does a publisher go about doing all this? What are the strategies they use? How do they find writers? How do they know what type of songs sell and how do they sell them? After reading Making Music Make Money by Eric Beall I am finally beginning to understand what happens inside the office. Whether you¿re a songwriter, or trying to start your own publishing company, this book covers just about everything you need to know to get started. It starts off basic, painless, and very easy to understand. Beall explains the role of a mucic publisher and how he/she fits into the industry. It then explains what copyright is, how to get it, and how to make a profit from it. From there it talks about setting up an office, building a business plan, and following through. Finally the book ends with tips on how to get songs, how to sell them, and how to make sure you¿re getting paid. After reading books like Everything You Need to Know About the Music Business by Passman, I was left a little confused in terms of music publishing, but now I have a clear understanding of not only what it is, but how to make a living from it. This is a must read for anyone who is serious about making a career in the industry.
