Production Music Libraries are big business. However, what are they? Why are they such great news for the mere musician and what opportunities are on offer? In this post, we will answer those questions and also provide you with a list of many highly reputable production music libraries who are listed with the PRS (Performers Rights Society) in the UK. Read on and we will explain more…
What are music libraries to the average man in the street?
I don’t know who you are and I don’t know a lot about you, but let us suppose that you are the average human being. Therefore, you wake up to a tune playing on your clock as an alarm (that is production music). While you have your breakfast, you turn the TV on and the first thing you hear is the theme tune to the news (also library music). Furthermore, you are in your car on your way to work. There is an advertisement playing (yet more library music). You see! Library music is everywhere. In fact, a whopping 80% of all the music you listen to every day is library music.
The Possibilities and Opportunities for the Production Music Libraries Artist…
Think about how many radio stations there are on the radio. Also, how many people do you know who upload videos to YouTube. Do you know anyone who even only uploads a video to social media once a week or monthly? Therefore, you can see the market for your own musical creation.
How Much Do Artists Make From Their Music When Submitting to Production Music Libraries?
If you make 50 tracks per year for six years, you could well see $100,000 per year for life and that is just six years. However, this is brilliant music and as we are humans we don’t always make brilliant music.
There is a saying in the music production world that your best music has yet to be written. Simply put, if you can be as prolific as 50 tracks per year for six years – you will be that good. This is because with practice comes experience and with experience comes better and higher quality music. It is as simple as that. It is all about consistency and persistency. Keep going, keep trying, and you will get there. You might need another day job in the short-term, but in the long-term, you will see wealth.
Where Can I Find a List of Music Libraries?
Here is a list of production music libraries. This list includes website addresses, social media accounts and also email addresses. Our advice to you is to produce 5 tracks and send them to each of the libraries on the list. However, it is also important that you check them out before you submit your music. Different libraries have different submissions procedures because they all have different ways of staying productive. Therefore, your first port-of-call should be the website to search for information on how to submit your music.
