The best?? Almost… More like the most consistent, because I am “driving the bus”... I am a freelance composer, mostly for local spots, and a performing musician, and guitar teacher… Recently, a local show I contributed songs toward (6 or 7) won a regional Emmy award, and my name is in the credits next to the amazing Steve Rothery….

AJ has been a great way to practice my recording craft and compositional craft make money too!! I am hoping for continued, consistent sales to help in the lean months.

Cheers!

Writing stock music is currently the only part of my music career. If I didn’t have that other pesky software development career to attend to I’m certain that I would branch out in any musical direction that would bring in revenue.

Audiojungle is definitely the most intriguing part of my music career at the moment, although to date the return on time invested has been negligible! I haven’t done jingles or corporate music, and have had some difficulty adjusting to the production concepts, so I’m taking the challenge seriously and trying hard to figure out what it is the buyers want – which is not necessarily what I naturally write!

I’ll be hitting it pretty hard over the next couple months by releasing 20-30 new titles (I have about 10 that are close to finished) – by late February my plan is to add a tune every day or two.

Writing music – in general – is awesome. On stock sites, it’s nice to get a little extra cash here and there. I must say that the best part (aside from the money), for me, is when I find out who licenses my music. I got notification about 2 weeks ago that a rather large US establishment bought one of my tracks. Now, I’m stalking their Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube pages to find it.

I love selling on stock sites, but the part that kills me is that I rarely get to see where my music goes. I understand that the buyer probably couldn’t care less, but it is SO exciting to see my music (legitimately) in the hands and projects of others.

People are buying it… So one would only assume that they’re using it… Ya know? It’s out there… but where?

I’d love to see a buyer’s option to identify themselves and\or their project.

SO… wrapping this up… The best part isn’t the money (yet)... It’s seeing my work working with others. :)

Being fairly new here, it is not the best part yet. Maybe it never will be from a money perspective. But what it has done for me is kept me writing in the gaps where previously I would have done something else. And I really need that. I always have a reason to write. There is always an outlet somewhere for the current track and there are no specifications beyond what I want to put out here. Right now, I am just building my portfolio, but each day, when I am done with the day gig and writing to someone else’s specifications for some project, I still am juiced to sit down and write something, anything. I am grateful for that.

I hear ya, If I didn’t have my day job, which is still pretty cool, I would be entrenched happily in writing music!
