Composing for Production Music Libraries

Today I learned that You can get your music into films, shows, and TV and radio advertisements by licensing your tracks to a production music library. A music library is a company that represents a catalog of music (commonly referred to as production music, stock music, and sometimes “royalty-free” music) and serves as an intermediary between composers and media agencies. Some libraries are exclusive, some are non-exclusive, and others give you a choice.

about music theory

I learned about music theory specifically the broken chords

where we should keep the keyboard parts naturally tend towards the clunky side, things can be improved by employing a technique known as broken chords. This involves breaking chords up into their component notes and playing them as short arpeggios (runs of notes). The technique doesn’t just add rhythmic interest, but it can be a great way of coming up with ideas for cool melodies that work naturally with the chord progression, since the notes you pick out are taken from the chords themselves.
