An interview with Kate Cooper of Shutterstock Music & PremiumBeat
Kate Cooper, a Montreal-based music producer for Shutterstock Music and PremiumBeat, joins us for a very useful conversation for any musicians looking to make some extra money.
Kate explains the ins and outs of composing and recording for production music libraries. At a time when the demand for production music is soaring, making tracks that can be licensed for anything from movies to advertisements to YouTube videos can be an excellent source of income for any musician with the right skill set. Kate explains what that skill set is, the challenges composers face when transitioning from writing songs to production music, how the writing and submission process works, how to get a foot in the door of the industry, and, most importantly, how the money works.
