How To Market & License Music For Film & TV

on Tuesday, March 23, 2010

at Mesa Community College in Mesa, AZ

Co-sponsored by
the Mesa Community College Music Business Program

According to Billboard magazine, among the 100 ways for music to receive exposure and cut through clutter, 7 of the top 10 ways include song placement. Music placement has increased dramatically in importance with the proliferation of media channels, and the competition is fierce as more artists and their reps seek licensing opportunities.

Success in synch licensing requires relationship-building, patience, organization, follow-up and understanding the needs of the music buyer.

In this NARIP program, four experts who have collectively secured thousands of placements will discuss strategies and information sources they use to exploit their catalogs and share tips on how to pitch and place music in television, films as well as in movie trailers, video games and advertising.

They will also discuss how to make music more attractive to buyers, where to find them and how to put yourself in line for the most favorable possible deal.

Most importantly, you will learn how to make and close these deals… and keep music buyers coming back for more.

NARIP programs on this topic have been a hit and/or sold out in every city where we have conducted it.

Get educated about the art of music placement!


Sample license agreement will be distributed at event.

Don’t miss this insider’s peek at the music placement realities of the fastest-changing business in the world. Most importantly, this program gives you practical information you can apply immediately to make better pitches and land placements NOW.

Returning to her entrepreneurial roots, she now integrates talent and publishers that span the globe into her new venture and produces brand-specific audio strategies for film, TV and new media.

This included bringing new and emerging talent to the company roster, and producing and packaging music for motion pictures, two soundtracks, trailers, video games and advertising campaigns, music libraries and original scores for spots and promos.

This included using audio watermarking, digital royalty streams, meta-data encoding, retooling and launching the company’s interactive Web sites and bringing new catalogs, like the trailer composer scoring series FULLTILT, to market.

Rosmann came to Groove Addicts from a career in public relations and marketing, previously owning and operating her own consulting firm. Her background includes extensive work for cable industry clients such as Lifetime Network and the NCTA.
