Record your song

So many beautiful songs have been written over many years and there is no record of them. Some songwriters are happy just to write a song with memorable lyrics and a beautiful melody. A song is never complete until it is noted somewhere.    

It can be scored on music sheet, or recorded as audio in a studio or simply by connecting your keyboard to a computer and playing into the music software that is available.                                                            

Learn to accompany your song on piano and record it in some form. You can sing while you play and it will be there when you or anyone else needs it. In the future it may be useful for some bigger project. Someone may find your song just right for a production in the future, and you will have evidence of ownership.

There are so many outlets for earning an income from original music. You can have your song licensed to a music library, A music library provides instrumental and vocal music for all the many movies, advertisements, and special occasions. Many musicians shy away from this outlet because they feel their music is too simple and that role is only taken up by big composers. Haven’t you heard some of those simple jingles on television ? It doesn’t take much to arrange them. So why not dust off those compositions, record and earn from them ? Can you imagine the pride you would feel hearing your little song on the radio?

    This reminds me of a friend who is so good at playing the piano he makes a living composing short jingles for advertising companies. His story has inspired me to do the same but since I got so deeply involved with internet marketing, I almost forgot about the hobby. Now, I am reminded again of this passion and planning to buy myself a piano or keyboards again for this purpose. 

    I’d like to ask about CD Baby. Do they accept songs from international or anywhere in the world?

    This is a good one I have a lot of ideas when it comes to music because I play the keyboard,bass guitar and drums and I also do live studio sessions too where I record songs and also do jingles….I was once taught if you want people to remember something record it.

      Record all your ideas even if you are not yet ready to develop them. Who knows, maybe one day you will find you have a hit song on your hands. Thanks for your comments.

    I love to sing even though I am not gifted with an angel voice. I even have the inclination to compose but in my own tongue. I remember the time when the cassette tapes were available and we had the fun of recording our songs and take with us on our way being played. Now, it’s much easier and more secure to record songs in CDs.

    Thank you for mentioning cdbaby as a good place for licensing a song. Would they accept a composition in any dialect? I have one.

      Yes yes. Record your song and get it out there. There are many songs being played all over the world because somebody likes them. CD Baby sells a wide variety of songs so you need to go on their site and browse the FAQ. They are likely to welcome your composition. Thanks for your comments Abagatan.
