Customer Reviews

“This book is a God send. It is not a get rich quick scheme. He gives you the key. You have to figure out which door it unlocks. Getting a record deal is now secondary in my life.”

– J-SALT

“Write, Record & Sell Production Music is the “go-to” resource for understanding the Production Music business. I highly recommend this book to anyone looking to understand this market. It’s well worth the price just for the included contact list alone. The best part is that Richard is a successful Production Music composer in his own right. Not only does the book define the nuts and bolts of the Production Music business, it also presents you with a “best practices” approach on how to execute based on Richard’s actual experiences. He takes you through the business, revenue streams, standard contract terms, as well as production, composition and submission tips. Believe me, I’ve searched all over the web, there is nothing this comprehensive anywhere else on this subject. I highly recommend the book. It will save you time, get you focused and give you a real process for success.”

David Henderson

“This book so far has been worth every penny and possibly more. I have yet to submit a song for review because I’m reading the PDF file, trying to work hard at improving my music with that helpful guide.

There is a plethora of information and knowledge is power, so anyone wondering if it’s worth it, well it is if the music is something you have a talent for!”

Adam Galloway | Odyssey Aquatic

“I am a professional composer/orchestrator/arranger and I want to let you know how much of a revelation your coursebook was on Production Music. I have always been interested in how the music you hear on TV, Radio, Film Trailers, Games, etc. was acquired. Most of my career has been spent with live stage music for the Musical Theatre, Stage Shows, and some Classical/Symphonic work.

Your course explained, essentially, everything needed to get into the field. From the overview of Production Music itself, how libraries work and the various types, the kinds of deals available, the forms of payment and royalties, how to submit to libraries, and even the appropriate mentality or outlook, I feel the book is thorough and comprehensive. I particularly appreciated the segment explaining the parameters of how the music should be structured, what the libraries and music supervisors are looking for.

Of course, possibly the biggest value is the list of Production Music libraries. Honestly, this was what really convinced me to invest in the book. It would take a great deal of effort to compile this list without any real knowledge of the field. I actually visited every single site on the list (a few each night). I feel I came away from that experience with a very real sense of what the libraries carry and which ones might be right for me. In addition, you have links to information about music supervisors and other industry resources.

I can honestly say that your coursebook is more than just a great introduction to Production Music. In fact, it is a step-by-step guide that shows you all you need to know to enter the field. I downloaded the book knowing virtually nothing and finished with a real sense of understanding what production music is and how to go about the attempt to enter the field. Well worth the investment.”

– Jimmy Lockett | JOL Productions

“Write, Record & Sell Production Music is your number one source for all the information that is needed to get you, the composer, started in a new musical endeavor called Production Music. As a musician and composer himself, Richard addresses the concern that many composers have when considering the selling of their own music. The book takes you thru the basic elements of the industry but always keeps you, the reader, in mind by explaining what you might come across and have to consider in each situation. Never forgetting the artists that we all are, the book also talks about the business side of production music and shows how you can make a living from writing, recording and selling your music. Have fun and good luck.”

– Parry Shields

The book is great, but the author is greater. I have been making production music and experimenting with intertwining genres since I was in high school. Over the years, it started out OK, progressed to good, etc. Now I have taken some of my greatest tracks and have begun to get rid of the “straight line” feel that they had, adding depth and quality so I can be right up there with the pros. I’m still fairly new to the technical side of things, but I got my start here, where I learned that great music is more than just an awesome tune. Now my years of piled up tracks can begin to mean something as I return to perfect them.

Richard has taken the time to email me personally, listen to my music, and give me an honest review of what I’ve got and what I need to get. Who else can you say has done that? Seriously, he should consider starting a school one day. It seems like he is well on the way to being able to, and students would love his style.
Thanks again for everything Richard.

– Nate Combs

“Over the years I have been trying (without much success) to break into the music industry in a variety of ways. Then one day a friend of mine suggested I try music libraries. I found Richard’s website and since then I’ve been amazed at the possibilities. After only two submissions, I received two offers!

Richard’s list of music libraries is easily worth the price of his program. But along with the contacts list, his explanations of various publishing deals, etc. are extremely helpful. Richard also provided me with expert, personal advice with questions I have had. Not only is he a wealth of information, he is a really sincere and nice guy.

It is without reservation that I would HIGHLY recommend “Write, Record & Sell Television Music” by Richard Pryde Hughes.”

– John Melaney
